Purveyors of fine grape juice
2018 Giovanni Armani Giorgio Bianco Superiore barossa valley, australia
$25

Notes from our favourite Italians..:
A return to more texture this year, with some mild skin contact combining with direct pressing to create a white wine of maximum refreshment but enough character to stand up to Roberto Benigni on a bad day.
45% Garganega, 37% Vermentino, 18% Sauvignon Bianco, 100% Oceanico.
The brief for this wine: make something well suited to drinking while devouring anchovies in the hot sun, naked. Giovanni ama le acciughe. Garganega from Mt Crawford left on skins for 8 hours, combined with some of Parish Hills’ finest Vermentino, which saw maceration for 4-5 days. To this, a dash of Sauvignon Bianco from Lenswood – direct pressed and barrel stirred – was added. These three wines were blended until al dente to the sounds of Fred Buscaglione. Green almond, lemon pith, slightly oiled texture, tropicalypso disco.
