2017 Gartelmann Blanc de Blanc
The youth of this wine is evident in its pale straw colour, and freshness in those appley fruit characters. The complexity is evidenced by the richness, depth and persistence in the mouth. Its potential to age is indicated by the strength of acid backbone through to the finish.
FOOD MATCHING: As a youngster it is a classic aperitif style... to be enjoyed pre-dinner with tangy salty oysters, gourmet nibbly bits on pumpernickel, to look fabulous in a flute glass and raised in celebration of some important life event, or simply as a conversation starter/accompaniment
With age it will sparkle in candlelight alongside a signature roast chicken or sole Veronique... , and it will always be romantic....
VINTAGE: The Hunter 2017 vintage was outstanding, with average rainfalls and temperatures, allowing for optimal ripening and flavours.
