De Bortoli Windy Peak Classic White 2009 CONFIRM 2009 VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Grigio Semillon Vermentino Yarra & King Valleys Victoria
An exciting style, vinified from a complex cepage of varietal grapes by the ever progressive Windy Peak. The crispness of Sauvignon Blanc is toned down by the warming stonefruit flavours of Pinot Grigio and dry flintyness of Semillon. The mix is further revved up by some Sardininan savouriness and zest, courtesy of a splash Vermentino. Match Windy Peak with pasta and shellfish, a Vietnamese pho or marinated and barbequed rosemary quail.
Fruit is selected from Victorian vineyards which can yield the quality of fruit worthy for Windy Peak. The Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio are sourced predominantly from the Yarra and King Valleys. Fruit is hand and machine harvested depending on the variety of grape and aspect of the individual vineyard site. Pressing of the grapes is very delicate, the intention being the achievement of rthe most refined base wines. The varietals are fermented separately and assembled after vinification to construct the defintive, classically fruit driven dry white style. Alcohol 12.0%
Vibrant straw in colour with green hues. Displays a fresh and grassy, slightly aromatic nose with some gooseberry character. A vibrant palate with zesty flavours and refreshing citrus tang, hints of stonefruits and lychee towards a pleasantly drying finish on a note of lemon rind and white spice. Easy to drink and rejuvenating, an excellent aperitif wine that gets the conversation going with it's intriguing mix of fruit, an inspiring accompaniement to piquant pasta recipes with light coloured sauces.
