2016 Blanc - Dry White

SOLD OUT
$22.00 inc GST

Fresh, crisp and dry in style, this elegant white is the perfect accompaniment to seafood.

 

We are constantly striving to find different ways to express the unique character of our Amery vineyard which has been in the Kay family since 1890. Muscat Blanc or White Frontignac has successfully been grown ever since to produce Liqueur Muscat. That said we couldn’t resist the temptation to do something different and produce a fresh, vibrant dry white style that could be enjoyed with seafood.

The 2016 vintage is the 4th release and shows characters of grapefruit and lemon zest with the unmistakeable perfumed characters of the Muscat variety coming to the fore.

The clean, fresh palate is tight and focused with a crisp, lively finish. Perfectly suited to enjoy with grilled fish or oysters.

Fruit was hand-picked, crushed and destemmed, then combined with a whole bunch component and lightly pressed using our 1928 basket press. The juice fermented at cool temperatures to maximise freshness and retain delicate flavours.

 

A small portion was barrel fermented and aged on lees for 2 months to enhance texture and complexity. This wine reflects a crisp dry style, loaded with fresh bursting fruit flavours of citrus and stone fruit along with a chalky texture and lively minerality on the finish.

 

Colour: Pale straw

 

Nose: A mix of floral and citrus notes; rose petals and lime.

 

Palate: Bursting with fresh fruit flavours of lime, honeydew melon and lychee. This is an elegant wine with a chalky texture and lively minerality, leading into a crisp dry finish.
