Carlei Estate Tre Bianchi 2006
Central Victoria, Australia
Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay blend
The pale lemon gold colour belies the intensity of flavour and fruit with this wine. The nose sees slate like minerals with a slight nutty overtone. In the mix there is some citrus fruit, cool white peach with a hint of grapefruit in fact. At the back palate there is gentle but firm acidity, which is well integrated with the other components, resulting in a balanced complex blend that finishes with a savoury note. This wine is as much about texture as it is flavour and will continue to improve with further bottle age.
Tasting Notes 25/06/2020 -
"A deep and concentrated nose with beautiful aged characters melding in with primary and secondary fruit. Fresh lemon, preserved lemon, honey, pine and nettles on the nose - with a subtle hint of nuttiness. Light bodied with medium acidity, this wine is all about the texture. Incredibly smooth with candied lemon, green olives and lemon sherbet on the palate. It's fantastic on its own, but pairing this with a creamy Carbonara or Pesto pasta would be amazing"
