My most recent delivery from Laithwaite’s had this more recent vintage of ‘Visionario’ with a label change. Is this any different from the 2018 vintage? No. It’s still the aromatic, rather confected (it’s dry, but not bone dry, and has notes of childhood sweets) wine which Laithwaites have sold for years now.
Tasting notes: Its appearance is pale straw in colour. Citrus notes on the nose and a confected note – reminiscent of the sweet ‘Refreshers’… Balanced. Medium length. Medium body. Dry. A bit of a witches brew of grapes but somehow it just about works. The result is interesting. Some intensity on the palate again with a confected note this time of ‘Parma Violets’. Some complexity: white stone fruits, white flowers, citrus notes.
