2023 Kin Pink Semillon
A truly fascinating wine that defies all categorisation…except that it is more-ish and very thirst-quenching. Alpine herbs mingle with orange and nectarine notes on the nose and something of a light amaro herb character. Lip-smacking acidity and a sense of zip combine with orange fruit character on the palate. Edgy, vital and memorable.
100% semillon gris with light skin contact, primary and malolactic fermentation in 1650L Gamba foudre before maturation in concrete on light lees. Pale orange salmon in the glass with aromas of white peach, cranberry and red apple with hints of blood orange, ruby red grapefruit, soft spice, redcurrant paste, dried citrus rind and white flowers. Sapid and delicious with a pure fruit core and a lovely, light red-fruited flow on the exit. Rosé-esque semillon gris for the win!
