2017 Catlin Cheese & Kisses Sin­gle Vine­yard Ade­laide Hills Fume Blanc

Halliday - - 100 New Notes -

Hand-picked from a sin­gle vine­yard, wild­fer­mented on skins for 3 weeks, then pressed to French oak, and ma­tured on lees for 7 months. The vini­fi­ca­tion de­tails would warm the cock­les of lovers of nat­u­ral wine un­til they see its pale quartz-green colour and

its ab­sence of feral char­ac­ters on ei­ther the bou­quet or palate. On the other hand, it has the ex­tra layer of tex­ture and flavour in­vested by its un­ortho­dox fer­men­ta­tion with­out di­min­ish­ing the fruit. 12% alc. RRP $27 / 2021 / Catlin Wines catlin­wines.com.au
