Bantam 2014

A rooster that gathers together its prized flock of hens to show their many personalities, is much like this blend of aromatic grape varieties.  The combination of fruity aromas and flavours from each of the seven grapes mingles perfectly together.

ABOUT THE WINE

Bantam is about freshness and liveliness, therefore cool fermentation in stainless steel along with careful blending of many aromatic grape varieties ensures bright fruit aromas and flavours. The 2014 assemblage consists of 24% Viognier, 20% Gewurztraminer, 17% Muscat, 12% Riesling, 12% Sauvignon Blanc, 8% Auxerrois and 7% Pinot Gris.

TASTING NOTES

A rooster that gathers together its prized flock of hens to show their many personalities is much like this blend of aromatic grape varieties. The combination of fruity aromas and flavours from each of the seven grapes mingles perfectly together. This just off-dry, light to medium-bodied wine has pure fruit aromas and flavours of peach, melon, yellow apple, star-fruit, tangerine and lychee, all dancing between notes of spring blossoms and rose petals. Juicy tangerine, pink grapefruit and melon linger on the refreshing, almost dry, finish. Enjoy while young and fresh.
