Expert Reviews

Barrel-fermented in French barriques (33% new), half wild yeast-fermented, half inoculated, and aged on lees for 10 months. Barrel maturation and 18 months in bottle have made the wine every bit as complex as the making would suggest, with smoky oak following behind intense lemongrass, citrus and the first signs of honey starting to appear on the back-palate. Rating 95 - Drink by 2022, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014)
