2020 Gartelmann Blanc de Blancs
The youth of this wine is apparent in its pale straw colour and freshness of green apple 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.
As a youngster it is a classic aperitif style... to be enjoyed pre-dinner with fresh rock oysters, gourmet nibbly bits on pumpernickel and to look fabulous in a flute glass raised in celebration of some important life event
The 2020 vintage in most of Australia was awful, due to drought, bushfires and smoke taint. This vineyard missed most of this due to luck and favourable winds.
