Hochkirch Sulphur Free Blanc 2020
- Vegan Suitable
- No Added Preservative
- Certified Biodynamic
RegionHenty, Western Districts, VIC
A fantastic example of a Biodynamic white wine full of class and purity. Rich coppery-yellow in colour, the nose exudes mandarin, lemon rind, apple and a hint of nuttiness. On the palate this is an intense textural wine, rich and honeyed, but not overpowering, with an inherent freshness and vibrancy. The fruit quality is evident by the complex and lingering finish.
This is an "orange' style of wine, made with some skin contact. Fantastic with a range of rich foods.
