Tasting Notes

ORIGIN

One of our Sicilian heritage Grape varieties, and as the name suggests it was originally brought over by the Greeks in the 7th century. Found to be genetically identical to Garganega, (which makes the famous Italian mainland wine Soave), this is a popular wine that matches so well with Mediterranean seafood dishes.

 

IN THE MAKING

  • Grown by Politini Wines – King Valley
  • Harvested: April, 2017
  • Cold fermented, minimal oak

 TASTE

Floral and nutty, quite delicate aromas, but fat, lemony and powerful fruit on the palate. Offers a real alternative to Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. It is a little more akin to the former, with a leafy pungency on the nose and notes of almond and citrus. The mid to back palate reveals a concentrated fruit quality that has a real tell-tale Italian bitter almond, or even Campari-like edge, to cool pear and lemon fruit.

– IN THE GLASS

Colour: Vibrant, golden straw.

Aroma: Strong almond and citrus.

Palate:  Characteristics include citrus, candied fruits and pineapple. A nutty toasted almond character with a weighty mouth feel on the mid-palate, finishing clean with a lovely toasty after palate.

– IN THE CELLAR

After gaining seven years of winemaking knowledge on this wine, the first 6 months reveals lots of pineapple and citrus. After a year in bottle, nutty almond and honey characters are evident. Best for immediate consumption, but will age for 7 to 8 Years. Do yourself a favour, buy 5 or 6 bottles and open one every 6 months to see how the wine develops and changes. Cheers!
