McLaren Vale yet again proving that the Mediterranean varieties are indeed well suited to the region.
Hastwell & Lightfoot, Vermentino, McLaren Vale, 2019
Vibrant just salty sea spray with lemon zest freshness, hints of starfruit, peach and tropical blossom. Offers bounce and energy with a richness to the finish (perhaps a touch of residual sugar) of honey and stone fruit.
Match to usual suspects of fresh seafood, spicy Thai salads or try it with a white mould cheese, (such as Camembert) and let the acidity cut through and melt the creamy goodness.
