A favourite here at Covert! Don't worry about what's in it, just enjoy it for what it is - a delicious glass/bottle of wine. Amuse is a blend of Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc, Gruner Veltliner and Chardonnay. Assistant Winemaker Matt doesn’t like Sauvignon Blanc so Steve and Matt made a blood oath to only create wines that they wanted to take home and drink. The creative juices were unleashed, and they started to blend. Amuse was the result
All hand harvested; Sauvignon Blanc and Gruner Veltliner cofermented with 60% naturally barrel-fermented. Chardonnay barrel-fermented and blended back post fermentation.
The 2017 vintage was a very cool, mild and stress-free occasion for vines, not winemakers! Good winter and spring rains were followed by a very mild, long summer. The results are wines with ample fruit complexity and great natural acidity. Most importantly however is the delicious fruit freshness
