Blanc de Noirs

Centennial Vineyard Blanc de Noirs NV, Southern Highlands, AUD $40

Centennial Vineyard’s second release Blanc de Noirs spends an impressive 62 months on lees. This explains the savoury tone of the wine, which is distinctive and engaging. The palate is full-flavoured, yet nicely defined, with good palate tension. It is a multi-layered wine with nuances of roasted nuts and toasted brioche. One to savour slowly. (Cork)
