2017 La Monella
Simon and Tamra (the team behind this wine) describe La Monella as, "a playfully bad girl….
The wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Semillon pressings “ svinatura” – the juice that comes out of the press that is denser, more solidsey, has more contact with the skins, more flavour, but can also be harsh and bitter if not treated properly…
She is a cheeky little blend, of all 3 white varietals, not a traditional blend at all but one to be fun, frivolous, tasty, surprising, a bit fruity….! But always delicious..
She is also very natural, free off any additives, just in her natural, unadulterated state.. no one dares to mess with 'LA MONELLA'! In fact she made herself.. the breakdown of the three varietals ( approximately 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Chardonnay, 5 % Semillon) was what was left over post pressing …. But this has created a wonderful combination with bucket loads of personality, poise, balance and a lot of spunk"
