2019 G.D. Vajra Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco
Dragon is a unique white blend from the Langhe. Originally produced by Luigi Baudana during the 1980’s with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, it has evolved to embrace Nascetta, the most exciting white heirloom varietal of the Langhe, and a tiny amount of Riesling.
Brilliant very pale straw colour with a greenish tinged rim and watery hue. Aromas of pear, spicy lime and green apple mix with fresh herbs and hints of slate. Delicious fresh pear, lime and green apple fruits are underpinned by bracing acidity with infusions of fresh herbs and wet stone chiming in on the dry crunchy finish. Excellent intensity with a long slatey mineral infused aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
