Matriarch & Rogue Maurie Clare Valley Vermentino 2017

Very expressive take on Vermentino here from the Clare Valley. It’s all lime, florals and a smattering of what comes across like blackcurrant leaf and even hints of passionfruit. Dunno, perhaps i’d tasted too many Sauvignon Blanc before it!

It’s certainly fresh, expressive - grapefruit acidity holds a line before textural, mineral elements (via some barrel ferment one suggests) chime in toward the back end.

Certainly distinctive as far as the variety goes. 90
