2023 Pigato Vermentino - 93 Points – Mike Bennie Review (The Winefront)
Skin fermented vermentino (20 days maceration) from Clare Valley. This one feels more in the refreshing zone than orange wine zone, but does the latter justice in its texture and pleasing bitterness. The tenth release for this significant wine!|
Like tonic water meets mandarin juice joined to alpine herbs meshed with green apple. What a delight! Lighter expression in a way, despite the ripple of powdery tannin through it all, a frisky, long, pink grapefruit finish laced with juniper berries a delight. Thirst-quenching stuff here. Tightly wound, lots going on, fine boned. Yummm.
