2015 VDF 'Terre de Silice'
Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Romorantin, Menu Pineau and Pinot Gris. Aged for 30 months in old demi-muid. One of the most complex and detailed whites in the Larkin Imports portfolio.
Beautiful light golden colour. On the nose this initially smells like a young Overnoy Chardonnay. Then with some air it starts to open up and display more lifted honey and floral notes – very subtle though. The nose becomes invigorating. Hard to pin point as it’s so complex – like an elixir of sorts. So fresh in the mouth, with a beautiful light texture. Very gentle notes of lemon, lime, honey, salinity, pear, peach, golden delicious apple - all morph and flow before the minerality kicks in. This is so complex and long it’s extraordinary. Very clean and pure, the balance is phenomenal. It has medium acidity that just drifts and drifts. The flavours just linger and linger and ask you to take another sip. Absolute heaven.
