Summary: The Papa Nico wines are honest and full flavoured, created for the table at big family occasions. Relaxed and easy to appreciate, wines that are part of the conversation, not dominating it.
Vineyards: Sourced from established South Australian vineyards with a blend of inland and premium regional fruit, the wines are rich and full bodied wines with excellent depth of flavour.
Winemaking: A very fast and precise vinification to avoid oxygen and maximise fruit expression and aromatics. A cool fermentation (15 to 18 degrees) is undertaken in stainless steel tanks before maturation on lees for three months to build depth and texture. Malolactic fermentation is prevented to ensure crisp varietal character.
2019 Vintage: Vintage 2019 will be remembered for the one that failed to produce much fruit. There was a deficit in rain during the summer which made it difficult for growers to make up the shortfall instead having to rely on irrigation. Although yields were down vines produced fruit with more intensity.
Tasting Note: Very pale with touches of yellow and green. The nose is fresh, pure and very aromatic with vital citrus fruit, floral and grassy aromas that is so indicative of Sauvignon Blanc. The palate offers a thrilling thunderbolt of vibrant tropical and citrus fruit flavours wrapped in soft mineral acidity. Enjoy this wine well chilled with a classic prawn cocktail.
