Wine tasting notes

The Vermentino’s crisp, structural and vibrant contribution is filled out by the Verdelho’s rich, tropical mid palate and yeasty lees stirred characteristics, while the Sauvignon Blanc twist gives the aromatics a lift and provides a herbaceous edge. So how does it taste: A crisp and refreshing mix of lemon, lime, grapefruit and white nectarine flavours leading into a soft and fleshy mid palate of honeydew, green apple and lemon sorbet. The focused acidity combined with the voluminous mouth-feel finish the wine with crispness, persistence and length.

Expert reviews

James Halliday (NV) - 90 pts

An idiosyncratic blend of 55/25/20% vermentino/sauvignon/verdelho with the majority taken from the ‘20 vintage; the remaining dollop serving as aged reserves of sorts. Charmat fermented. Works well. Dry, briny and almost sandy textured. Pleasurable frothy bead. Lemon squash, pear gelato, spiced grape and citrus peel. Lots of fun in this glass. Ned Goodwin Published 01 March 2021
