2018 Chateau Acid Bianco
100% biodynamic Vermentino from a sandy decomposed granite parcel in the remote central ranges of NSW.
2 weeks skin contact and 10 months untopped in terracotta, gravity only, zero adds. There's still the intense apricot and floral perfume, but with structure and acidity that give it the dimension also found in 2017. This wine spends 10 months under a thick flor, just long enough to introduce tertiary notes but short enough to retain freshness, also gives some degree of oxygen immunity and volatility is low, so very stable.
