Pardas Rupestris White Blend

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Made from traditional Spanish white grapes, this is a style that shows lots of white stone fruits, yellow citrus and some matchstick 'funk' at first sniff, then some delicate florals come through with some air. The palate is lighter-bodied, with juicy peach and lemon flavours, a subtle lick of honey, tight, flinty acidity, and a dry, refreshing finish. Seafood or chook would be amazing with this!

Winemaker's Notes

Nose: Intense with a lot of depth. Citrus fruit. Sant Joan pear shake and ripe melon. Quince and soft hazelnut. A feeling of dawn in a Mediterranean landscape. Aromas of lavender, weaver’s broom and dried cuttings.

Palate: Beyond the fruit, we find the minerality of the soil where the vines thrive in. Quite a lot of flint. Fresh and fruity passage through the mouth. Glyceric ample and franc in the mouth. With character. Pears, apricots and peaches overlay a marked acidic background and provide an excellent tension across the palate which carries over the depth of the fruit towards an electric fresh and slightly bitter aftertaste.

Food: Ideal to accompany seafood: mussels, shellfish, Dublin bay prawns as well as grilled and baked fish.

Alcohol: 12.9%
