2015 Konpira Maru V for Vermentino heathcote, australia
$22

All Vermentino from Chalmers Vineyard, sees skin contact, lees stirring, sent to bottle unfined and unfiltered.
Alistair Reed, a lecturer on wine and viticulture at Melbourne Polytechnic, and Sam Cook who worked at retailer Black Hearts & Sparrows, make this range of wines under the Konpira Maru name. Curiously there’s an oil tanker boat of the same name.
Has an apple tang kind of scent, sniff of almond, some green melon, whiff of honey butter – jumps around in your nose. Palate is juicy, shows some puffs of talc-like minerals, is pretty short, but no sweat, it’s very refreshing even if brief. Yummy kind of simple wine built for whipping down quick.
