This Week's Whites July 12th 2019

This week was a bit varied, taking a sideways look at some old world varietals which are looking better and better in Australian vineyards...more so than some of the traditional plantings.

2018 YELLAND & PAPPS 2ND TAKE VERMENTINO, BAROSSA VALLEY

Yelland & Papps 2nd Take Vermentino is fantastic. Its cloudy but no issue there. The nose really takes you places, there is a really bright briny note with lemons "like a seabreeze blowing through a lemon orchard at midday" then more lemon curd. The briny note is characteristic of Vermentino and it flows through the palate mingling with lemons and stonefruit.This is a texural wine and time spent on skins has allowed those phenolics to play a part, this wine wraps itself around your tongue in a wonderful textural display with acids playing second fiddle in the background. More about texture than flavour, it’s a beautiful wine. Serve it with Roasted / Barbecued Barramundi.

FIRST RIDGE WINES FIANO, MUDGEE 2017

First Ridge Wines Fiano has aromas of crisp lemon notes, fine chalky steely minerality with hints of sherbet. What a palate, lemon curd wraps around the tongue. It's quite a textural wine and what a balanced finish – WOW

OAKRIDGE YARRA VALLEY RANGE CHARDONNAY, YARRA VALLEY 2018

Oakridge Yarra Valley Chardonnay is new! It's awesome, with a slightly reductive nose…which blows off, there are distinct aromas of oak, unripe nectarines and grapefruit it really works and continues to evolve as the bottle opens up.

A rich & decadent palate of lush yellow stonefruit, peaches & nectarines, oranges, hints of minerality close to saline with almond meal on the finish…gorgeous wine with settled acids. Beautiful finish.
