    Crocus Riserva

    Vernaccia di San Gimignano DOCG 2017

    $185

    Category: White Wine

    • A RAY OF SUNSHINE

      The colour of a Tuscan sunset, this golden wine is a white with oomph. Made from the best grapes in the vineyard, Crocus Riserva is partially matured in French oak barrels with continuous batonnage until its complex flavours have developed. This full-bodied, aromatic wine tastes of peaches and vanilla, with a subtle “oakiness” that adds an extra layer of flavour. For chardonnay fans, there’s a lot to love in this wine.

    From the winemaker

    The best San Gimignano Vernaccia grapes of our vineyard are fermented half in oak and half in steel, then aged for 12 months on its lees for structure and fullness. A wine with tremendous depth of ripe stone fruit flavours and vibrant natural savouriness, it can be enjoyed on release or cellared for three years for further complexity.

    Food pairing

    Perfect with spicy dishes.

    Rich, creamy and full-bodied, this wine can mellow out the spice level of Sichuanese, Thai or Indian foods.

    If you prefer your food to be comforting rather than hot, drink it with macaroni cheese.

    Reviews

    When I drink this wine, it makes me smile. It has become my ‘better than average, open the fridge and drink it’ wine. I’d fallen out of love with acidic sauvignon blancs, couldn’t justify HK$200 Sancerre’s and cheap pinot grigios were my regular but bland go to, until now. Crocus Riserva reminds me of sucking clover as a kid and getting a hint of honey, it has no acid, no oak, no oiliness. I prefer it not too chilled to get the best out of the aromas.
