Golden Grove Sparkling Vermentino SPV 2017

Not too many examples of Sparkling Vermentino that I can recount. This being GG's second stab at the style. Experimental, but also also from a business perspective ties up opportunity for some time given it is released as a two year old. 

Upon opening it's more the bread, brioche hints that one notices. Slowly, surely, it yields subtle pear - Williams if one wishes to talk variety.

The palate, crisp and measured, a minerality and liveliness dancing across the palate. Fruit aspects more prominent here, tugging along with somewhat generosity of length. The time on lees adding width, adding to the whole. 91
