Chapel Hill Il Vescovo White 2012

Take 3 grape varieties that originally hail from three different countries spanning across Southern Europe, add them to McLaren Vale, bring in a drop of Chapel Hill know-how and you get one fresh, fruity and floral little beauty that I'm sure you could quite happily do some damage to on a hot Summer's day.

Verdelho, Savagnin and Roussanne are the components here. Those florals waft out, augmented with tropical notes and a honeyed edge, and seemingly invite the nasal passage to somewhere else, somewhere likely overlooking the sea.

Peach notes, hints of lemon, wax - really good textural feel. Nutty hint present too, those textural nuances aid and abet the enjoyment factor. Finish is a little 'washy', but still good texture to see you home. 89
