Overflow Estate Square Root Vermentino 2015
Young vines are showing their hand here bursting from the blocks but easing off early. A pretty perfume of little white flowers, kaffir lime leaf and lemons. Refreshing to taste, though there is a line of nothingness straight through the middle. Watery would describe it best. Firmish acid knocks everything in place with a late charge from some lemon sherbet. Some time on lees wouldn't hurt to give it some textural interest.
That mid-palate disappearing act takes it back a notch or two.
