Casa Freschi La Signorina 2009

Far from a common blend, but damn it works. I tasted this blind and was gob smacked when the blends were revealed. Initially, I thought there was a much higher concentration of chardonnay, but the four just work together wonderfully.

The four I refer to are Pinot Grigio 32%, Riesling 32%, Chardonnay 23% and Gewurztraminer 13%. 100% barrel fermented, with the vast majority of the wine left on lees for six months.
Pale straw appearance, the mouth is coated nicely. Stone fruit and nutty characters jump out of the glass with some musk stick aromas chipping away in the background.

The flavours are not too dry with a little fruit sweetness, they also present some lime cordial and good length. Delish!

Drink within the next two to three years.
