2020 Flor Savagnin



Tasting Note


Colour: Bright, pale straw with yellow gold edges
Aroma: Very delicate yet complex with chausson aux pommes (apple turnover), kaffir lime, pear skin and a delicate flor character.
Palate: Excellent length and complexity with delicate citrus notes of lemon and lime, leading into a flinty note followed by a wonderful biscuity finish. This wine continues through multiple phases to an amazing nutty/brioche flor character finish.

Municipal Wines Riesling Reviews 2016

Review

Well, well, well. Someone else has done their Jura homework with the gift that is savagnin in Australia. Municipal has applied a short(ish) flor experience to the wine, but geez, the intensity of it is something else. Brilliant.

It’s hectic in perfume, great fino whiffs, oyster shell, creamy almond and green apple strong in this wine. Flavours like that too, set to medium weight, a little chalky chomp and that cavalcade of juicy, bitey acidity that comes stock-standard with this variety when nurtured well. This was a sit me back in my seat moment – Jura comparisons, hell yes, albeit you might say a little less intense, a bit more gluggability over complexity, but there’s detail here no doubt. I loved drinking this. Refreshing, interesting, delightful, cool. Bravo.
