Ulithorne Dona – Blanc 2019
Fresh stone fruit and citrus on the nose. The palate displays white peach, grapefruit, lemon zest and apricot flavours with a fine texture, a slight nuttiness and crisp acidity.
The Viognier and Marsanne were both picked in the cool hours of the night and very early morning three days apart in late February 2019. Both parcels were gently pressed before being combined with a portion of the pressings going to barrel for natural fermentation. After fermentation the separate parts were then blended to capture the freshness and complexity required for the Dona Blanc.
