GOLDEN GROVE ESTATE 2012 VERMENTINO

Wine Reviews Leave a comment  

 A Sardinian variety that perfectly reflects the heritage of Golden Grove Estate.

Winemaker’s Comments (Ray Costanzo):The nose is awash with fresh pear, citrus and a floral background. The palate is a delicate blend of citrus and fresh fruit wrapped neatly around a mineral acid backbone and further enriched through the use of wild barrel fermentation.

Reviewer’s comments (Andrew Corrigan MW): Aromas of fresh lemon pudding are followed by a taste that is light dry and fresh but with pleasing weight. Will match well to complex flavoured light foods such as marinara and barbecued dishes.

Ballandean Estate SSB 2012  Lively aromas of nettles and nectarine with tingling fresh taste. Serve chilled before meals or with light fresh seafood dishes such as calamari.

Golden Grove Vermentino 2012  Aromas of fresh lemon pudding are followed by a taste that is light dry and fresh but with pleasing weight. Will match well to complex flavoured light foods such as marinara and barbecued dishes.

Robert Channon Singing Lake Verdelho 2012  Citrus and passionfruit aromas with a full bodied taste with long texture. The back palate has a grippy dimension that will team well with bigger food flavours such as sardines and Mediterranean seafood flavours .

Clovely Estate Barbera 2010  Dark cherry aroma and medium bodied silky palate with a pleasing amount of savoury tartness. A refreshing lighter red that will team well with pasta and Italian foods. Will develop over the next two years.

Ridgemill Estate Cabernet Malbec Merlot 2009  Rhubarb and dark fruit aroma with full bodied flavour; a robust style to match full flavoured meat dishes.

Crane Cabernet Shiraz 2010  Rich port like aromas with very full bodied taste; will accompany roasted meats and game dishes.
