Pieropan Calvarino Soave Classico DOC 2016, Veneto, AUD $55

Made from 70% garganega and 30% trebbiano grapes, this is a single-vineyard wine from hill nicknamed after Calvary. There’s daylight between this and most ordinary Soave. Floral and lemon aromas; a classy wine of great fruit purity and finesse. The texture is refined and the aftertaste long. (Cork)
