Golden Grove Estate Sparkling Vermentino 2016


This is the first Sparkling Vermentino release from Golden Grove Estate. There's not many of these in the market place - the only other I've had was from Barossa Valley's Yelland & Papps.



Wild yeast fermented, 30% went two year old French oak and sat on lees for four months.

Cut pear, jasmine flowers but not overly aromatic. Fleshy weight through the mid palate met with a drop of lemon juice, crisp acidity frames the textural mouth feelSappy dryness to finish which draws saliva from the mouth.

Would I buy it? I'd have a glass. A fair debut ready for aperitif town.
