Oaked sttles with more bolder flavours, pair well with linguini vongole, halbut, pork loin, rich root vegetables and mushrooms. Medium bodied with medium acidity, typical aromas include yellow apple, pineapple, citrus, vanilla and butter.
Sister grape of Pinot Noir; adds fruity aromatics to a wine blend; synonymous with being blended with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Champagne.
Light in colour and body with a silky fruit intensity of raspberry and cherry and a touch of spice when oak aged. Pairs well with roasted flavours
Style | Fresh & Light
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
