2019 VDF 'Nicole'

Domaine la Taupe

Regular price $49 750ml Sale

This is an orange wine, made from Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes were selected from three parcels, with vines aged between 20-60 years old. The soils vary, but are mainly made up of clay with limestone subsoils, with notable amounts of silex. 50% of the grapes were macerated for 3 weeks, and the other 50% were directly pressed, to lift the wine and add freshness. Aged for 1.5 years in old barrels. Not fined or filtered. Zero added SO2.

Beautiful clear and transparent, light orange colour. The aromas are clean and restrained with brine, tangerine, apples, mandarins and peaches. To taste it is quite flavourful, yet straight and linear. Very fresh and clean, and has superb balance. The palate also displays beautiful restraint and purity. There is lots of detail on the mid palate, and it finishes with gentle tannins. Lovely refreshing acidity, tension, and great balance overall. Not too heavy and not too light - a delicious food friendly orange wine that is super versatile. 13.5% alc.
