Seppelt Salinger Vintage Cuvee 2009, Great Western, VIC

Seppelt Salinger Vintage Cuvee 2009 Great Western VIC Henty Adelaide Hills Mornington Peninsula Simple Palates Seriously

Made from Chardonnay (63%), Pinot Noir (28%) and Pinot Meunier (9%), and includes up to 5% aged reserve wines for added complexity. This is a multi-regional wine, with fruit sourced from the cool climate sparkling regions of Henty (70%), Adelaide Hills (25%) and Mornington (5%). The wine is left to rest and develop in the underground cellars at Seppelt Great Western (VIC) for a minimum of three years before release.

$26. Clear, pale straw yellow colour. Youthful aromas of green apple and lime citrus, hints of raw nuts and white pepper. Very fine mousse texture, I’d personally prefer larger bubbles for a more robust mouthfeel. It has med+ acidity (specifications state 7.3g/L which is on the lower side of white wines), and weighs in at 12% alc. Flavours of lemon, lime rind, green apple, fresh and persistent finish. This is a good quality wine for this pricetag. Drink now. 88/100.
