Susuro Wines Mornington Peninsula Friulano 2019

We are going off the beaten track here into the world of skin contact and low intervention wines. The first clue is this white wine is a little cloudy as it has been bottled with a touch of sediment to add texture and also some earthy tones. And it is also made from Friulano, a grape seldom seen out of its home in Northern Italy. Friulano is often quite an expressive grape variety which the skin contact has muted in this example, as you would expect.

For the style I like it. There are beautifully delicate fruits; peach skin, floral and earth with some subtle oak. This all leads to a tangy and larger angular palate with some attractive textural richness. It is super savoury, still overlaid with those pretty floral fruits and then finishes long with a saline tang. A good primer into the world of more natural wines.
