External Reviews for Gemtree Vineyards Savagnin Mclaren Vale Moonstone
Gemtree’s 2010 Moonstone Savagnin has moderately intense lemon curd, lanolin, straw and white pepper notes. Medium bodied with a good amount of pure citrus and pear flavors and refreshing acid, it gives a medium length finish.
This is 100% Savagnin - a grape variety that is quite uncommon in Australia, but has nonetheless produced this deliciously fresh and thirst-quenching white! Green apple, peach, and citrus are all evident on the front and mid-palate, and the wine finishes with wonderful acidity.
A deliciously zesty and thirst quenching wine! Pears, melon and citrus fruits are all evident in the front to mid palate. The palate is a two-fold experience: characters of Italian pinot gris pedigree, with weight and texture and then the back palate is all racy and riesling-like, with wonderful acidity. We are tremendously proud of our fourth release of Moonstone and it reiterates our belief that this variety (Savagnin) is very well suited to our climate and vineyard.
