Long Play 2019 — Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris
Long Play is a lively free run white blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris, from Karridale and Mount Barker. A fresh, vibrant fruit driven wine with an unexpected savoury twist. The beautiful pale lemon colour implies freshness and life, while the slightly cloudy appearance brings a heightened expectation of something a little different.
Sauvignon Blanc brings a vibrancy of fruit, exotic aromatics and flavours, both sweet and savoury; while the Pinot Gris brings rose petals aromatics and a rich texture to build the mid palate; and the Riesling offers a defined citrus and pomme fruits line, length and clarity.
The aromas are fruit laced with subtle sweet spice and herb notes. Citrus, passionfruit, black currant, gooseberry, green apple pear make for a mouthful of flavour and hint at the varietal mix. Low input winemaking and the long time on lees adds a supple texture, richness and depth that helps this collage of flavours to linger longer. Mineral accents and fine citrus acidity define the finish.
