First Drop, Full Fat White, 2016
Full Fat White is a blend of four different grapes, each contributing different elements to the wine: Pinot Grigio gives a zesty, citrus backbone, Arneis adds flavours of pear and grapefruit, Chardonnay loads on tropical fruit flavours and a drop of Moscatel adds aromatic floral notes.
After blending, the wine is then left for 4 months “sur lie” in stainless steel tanks. The resulting palate is luscious, with lemon curd and lime brulée flavours to the fore, undercut by thirst-quenching drinkability.
There’s a lot going on in this wine which means it a food friendly star favourite. It we were pushed to food match, we’d enjoy this one with a bucket load of seafood.
