Wine Details - Petit Blanc is a wine that is lithe but not light, fun, and free of heavy-handed winemaking. No new oak, no malolactic fermentation, no battonage, no nonsense. A wine that hits above its weight and delivers a strong quality to price ratio. . The 2015 vintage of this unique blend is Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris dominant. A few other aromatic varieties like Muscat Blanc and Viognier are in the blend making the whole greater than the sum of its parts.
Tasting Note - Stone and citrus fruit flavour elements are everywhere: apricot, peach, yellow plums, Meyer lemon and melon abound on both the nose and the palate, while there is a core citrus note throughout. The most attractive quality of the 2015 Petit Blanc is the phenomenal balance between the components while the alcohol is kept in check clocking in at a low 12.7%. The entry is round, focusing on the mid-palate while the finish is crisp and refreshing.
