Gentle Folks Scary White 2016


Cork. 11.5%. Adelaide Hills. A field blend of sauvignon blanc, riesling, gewürztraminer, chardonnay and pinot gris.

A blend of five, the gewürz the most notable - aromatically and texturally. Skin and musk, an orange wine in scent - pith and glue, perfume and toluene. It is floral and fresh. Pale green for the synesthetes. Salty and savoury in the mouth. Yes.
