Boomtown Winemakers Co-operative White 2016

Established in 2014, Boomtown is a co-operative winery based at the old Castlemaine Mill in Central Victoria. It's a 'less is more' philosophy of a group of young winemakers intent on making small batch, natural wines using wild yeasts and minimal chemicals from grapes sourced from various Victorian regions. 
The White here is a blend of Pinot Gris from Bendigo, Sauvignon Blanc from the Pyrenees with Riesling and Viognier from Heathcote. The percentage of each variety is not stated on the label.

Pale straw yellow colour.
High in the aroma stakes. Florals, grass, apricot, melon and guava.
Nectarines, nashi pear, apricot flavours and nettle give the palate a layered and textural character. The wine is not overly oily but has a rich and dry feel to it.
Finishes with a nice kick of acid and a good slatey, herbal length. 
Medium weight blend with lots of interest, brightness and drinkability. Good find here.
