So glad to have stumbled on to this great wine. This has to be up there with the best of this variety in Australia.
The colour is pale straw with a hint of green apple.The nose has some steely minerals accompanied by notes of pears and apples.
The palate is where it all happens and the first thing I noticed was the superbly rich unctious and velvety texture. Within this there are the minerals, rich stone fruit flavours with just a little apricot, and good acid to help hold it in balance. It is a rich and full bodied wine (no doubt helped by the 14.5% alcohol) but in no way fat or flabby. It still retains its finesse and fine structure with superb balance. A long finish simply tops off a wonderful wine. No need to cellar this wine more than 12 months or so – it drinks at its peak right now. This treasure came to us via the BABE boutique wine club, we will be looking to get more soon.
