Grandis Wines Unearthed Garganega 2021

“Stolen” fruit from the Ablington Vineyard, located in heart of the Hunter Valley of Pokolobin. Garganega is better known in its N-E Italian home as the main variety in the Soave. Fermented on skins for 7 months in old French oak . Zero fining. Unfiltered. Vegan friendly. Minimal preservatives. Local boy Shannon Burgess-Moore done good. Only 600 bottles made.

Grandis UE Gar

A little cloudy sediment in the bottle. Medium gold hue with an apricot blush. Roast mixed nuts, barley sugar, yellow apple, lime skin, yellow stone fruit, bread dough and honey.  Mid weight. Slightly waxy and viscous palate start, moving through chewy texture and finishing dry and briny, near to the point of being puckering. Electric acid shocks through the texture. Worthy to seek out for those that enjoy a point of difference.

RRP: $30

12.3%
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
