Zontes Footsteps Lady Marmalade Vermentino, McLaren Vale, Australia, 2018 (750ml)
Pale straw with vivid green hue. Limes! Limes! and more limes! With gentle white peach fragrances. A rush of pink grapefruit, almonds and citrus crispness on entry. Refreshing, tart peach and lime curd with subtle minerality. A tangy, mouth-watering finish and white peach and ruby grapefruit in the texture of crushed slate and finishing with zesty citrus. Flavoursome and fine with crunch texture, cleansing acidity to boot!
ABOUT THE WINE
The fruit for Lady Marmalade is sourced from hand tended blocks at the mouth of the Goolwa River of the Fleurieu Peninsula. The harvested fruit is de-stemmed and crushed into stainless steel tanks with only the finest quality free run juice being chilled to 5 degrees Celsius to preserve the expression of the fruit. Fermentation takes place in these tanks where the wine is allowed to complete a natural malolactic fermentation if it occurs. It is then racked off gross lees and cold settled prior to bottling
