Doran Georgia Maeve 2017 Tasting Notes

Doran Georgia Maeve 2017Harvesting/Cellar:

The grapes came from a bush vine vineyard comprising Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc & Roussanne. The vines of these varietals were interplanted, and therefore a mixed crop of these cultivars were harvested together.

Fermentation:

The free run juice was fermented in 2nd, 3rd & 4th year old oak barrels.

Maturation:

The wine was left on its lees for 12 months before bottling, and a further 6 months in bottle before releasing.

Winemaker's notes:

This is a lavish and weighty wine yet balanced by a delicate acidity. It has many well layered depths of tastes with toasted almonds, honey and pear being prominent. A pleasant minerality adds to long finish.

Good drinking for 3-5 years. Excellent with Asian cuisine, salads, light pastas and white meats.
