A blend of sauvignon blanc, vermentino and viognier that sees a bit of skin contact then maturation in old barrels. Despite BNW claims this is entry level, fun times wine, it delivers way more than that, even by virtue of the blend of grapes making for a curious jazz trio, not to mention the lees and skinsy stuff working magic on texture. It is fun to drink, no doubt, of course.
Chewy, chalky, bright young wine of layers of flavour and scent. Brown pear skin and flesh, a touch of dried apricot, some white balsamic tang in palate, a similar array of things going on bouquet. Juicy sort of feel but that pucker and zest work magic on containing the wine shape. This has plenty to keep you interested and plenty to make you forget you are drinking something and plenty to say about originality. Tickin’ boxes. - The Wine Front
