2019 Carto Semillon

Hunter Valley, New South Wales

A pretty wild but incredibly fun skinsy from Brendan. Tropical fruit salad, preserved citrus, medium grip and a long finish with biting crisp acidity. Dried fruit, ginger and nuts on the nose. Needs 15-30m to breather. Made from organic hand picked Semillon grapes from Ascella vineyard in the Hunter, destemmed and on skins for 7 days before pressed off into an old barrel and not topped for several months.

About the maker

Starting as a little side project to his like as a chef, Brendan Cato sources high quality fruit from various hot spots around New South Wales.

Even after working as a chef, Brendan already has experience working vintages in France and Italy since 2014 and so spinning his own up was a natural progression. The fruit is hand-picked from sites in Orange, Mudgee, Canowindra and Brendan's first two vintages were done using his mate's equipment at Mecca Coffee in Sydney's Inner West. Carto wines are a perfect balance between complexity and drinkability. The wines are really outrageous value for what they offer in terms of flavour, liveliness, on point acidity and made to be sipped young.
