Overview

Beautifully balanced, delicate and persistent flavours that linger, this full-bodied wine displays a rich exotic blend of lychee, musk, sweet ginger spice, quince, Turkish delight and lush tropical fruits. A seductive wine offering, delicacy and balance, with depth and flavour concentration distinctive for the region. The finish is dry but beautifully integrated by both fruit and the gentle cleansing mineral acidity and quartz on the finish.

Expert Reviews

This is a tight and linear style of the variety, with green apple and musk on the bouquet; the palate shows plenty of acidity, and finishes bone-dry with a chalky mineral conclusion. Drink to 2014.Rating 93 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Editon 2011
