Golden Grove Sparkling Vermentino 2017
Clearly bursting with freshness, the cork couldn't wait to get out of the bottle quick enough. Only one of two Sparkling Vermentinos in Australia, this is a beauty.
The base wine was made with a little skin contact and 100% wild yeast fermentation in two-year-old French barrels. Six grams of residual sugar remain. A fraction sweeter than the last vintage, this 2017 is clean, fresh and very refreshing.
Some whiffs of elderflower before poached green apple and white flower scents step up. A touch of almond meal and a little biscuity lick flank the lemon sherbet and lemon juice washing through. The appearance of a lemony tang late calls you back. Crisp with a beautiful elegance probably sums it up best. Go here.
