Pizzini White Roman 2012 (King Valley, Vic)
12%, Screwcap, $18.50CD
As ever I remain seduced by the florals of Gewurtz and this carries the telltale Gewurtz musk coupled with the acidity of Riesling. Gewurtz is a dominant beast though and you can see that through the wine, that pretty floral stamping itself all over the wine like an elephant in ballet shoes. It is nice and clean and dry, if again broad through the finish, perhaps indicating uncertain ripeness and a hint of rot..
Regardless this is easily the most attractive of these Pizzini 2012 aromatics, the depth of flavour the best of the lot too.
Score: 16.8/20 89/100
Would I buy it? Maybe. Maybe with XO pippies actually as the extra weight and acidity would work nicely.
