Pecorino 2023


Tasting Notes

We’re paying homage to this Italian grape variety showcasing our expression in trademark Paracombe style. The climate and terroir of the vineyard has similarities to its origins in Italy adding to the allure of this variety.

The aroma is opulent and lifted showing white stonefruit characters of peach & nectarine, green mango and black pepper.

Fresh citrus notes of pink grapefruit and Lisbon lemon accompanied by generous minerality give this wine beautiful persistence lending it perfectly to Italian cuisine.

What Reviewers are saying

Pecorino as a variety has legs in Aus, is my humblest opinion. Refreshing, slightly spicy-herbal, crisp whites for seafood, hell yeah. Crunchy texture, green mango, white pepper, sage leaf, some wet slate characters. Some good concentration here too but retains lighter, fresher styling, and the finish is all crushed rock minerally and very satsifying as a conclusion. Delicious, moreish, wonderful expression.
