Struck match, flinty whiffs, stones and steel. Good green apple fruit character amongst some pear drops and a touch of green herb. Juicy texture, greeness a bit more overt to taste, finishes watery and lacking in flavour but there’s a dedicated restraint that is very compelling. Fine mineral water with a squeeze of lime in it. A racy, fine, linear and delicate wine style here. Rating 90 - Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au (JUN/2015).
Winery Tasting Notes
Bright & brilliant –pale green rim.
Citrus, melon and nectarine fruits overlayed with subtle notes of dried herbs, freshly toasted spices and tropical fruit notes from wild barrel fermentation on solids.
Bright, fresh and long with lovely flavor intensity. Subtle textural and savoury elements from wild fermentation on solids add complexity and the stamp of house style.
This wine is drinking well now but careful cellaring until 2017+ will be rewarded.
