2021 Concongella Blanc
Colour: Very pale straw with flashes of gold.
Bouquet: Pretty and inviting rose petal and melon aromas. Still very fresh and restrained at this early stage.
Palate: Vibrant citrus and melon with crisp acidity and a lingering residual freshness.
Pairing: Delicious served with a creamy pasta dish like spaghetti carbonara. Best drunk in the short to medium term, but will keep for 10 years or more.
Vintage: An excellent season with near perfect growing conditions right through to harvest. Adequate winter and spring rainfalls set the wines up to burst into life and sustain beautifully balanced growth throughout the summer. Autumn was ideal with little rainfall and warm conditions to ensure the grapes matured gracefully.
Region: Great Western, Victoria
Grape Variety: Nursery Block White Field Blend
Alcohol: 12.0 %
Winemaker: Justin Purser
This is my favourite Bests’ white – dry, minerally at the front and quite complex overall. Awesome wine!
