Kangarilla Road The Veil 2015 South Australia McLaren Vale

$31.95

Kangarilla Road The Veil 2015

This wine is inspired by an ancient and distinctive style made from the Savagnin Blanc grape variety
traditionally grown in the Jura region of France where the wine is most famously known as vin jaune. Here the wine is made by a similar process to that of Sherry, developing its unique aromas and flavours in barrel and under a strain of yeast known as flor. These wines can be quite pungent, the result of between 3 and 5 years under the flor yeast. Here the flor yeast which sits on the surface of the wine grows as a thin film or ‘voile’ – veil in English. In order to capture the delicate aromas and flavours of the Savagnin Blanc variety we have aged this wine in one year old French barriques for 8 months under flor.

Served chilled these wines are prefect aperitifs and a wonderful accompaniment to fresh oysters or sashimi.

The familiar aromas of rich fruit and nut cake laced with brandy and touches of marzipan. An intriguing flirtation of Cara Cara orange peel and sun warmed ripe apricots hint at what the palate holds. Intense dried apricots soaked in brown lime cordial delight the palate and toffeed apricots are carried to a seemingly never ending finish.

This wine is not filtered and may appear a little cloudy.
