2017 Golden Grove Es­tate Gran­ite Belt Vermentino

Halliday - - 100 New Notes -

Destemmed and crushed, and made in six batches: free run, press­ings, wild fer­men­ta­tion in bar­rel (2 months in new French oak), lees fer­ment, skin mac­er­a­tion (4 days), and full skin mac­er­a­tion (ma­tured in 30% new French oak). Pale straw-green; the full wine­mak­ing book has been thrown at this, achiev­ing tex­ture and struc­ture rather than va­ri­etal char­ac­ter, but what is re­mark­able is the power and the length of the lemony fruit. Devel­op­ment po­ten­tial++. 11.6% alc. RRP $26 / 2023 / Golden Grove Es­tate ★★★★★ gold­en­groveestate.com.au
