Overview

Concentrated, lifted aromas of green limes and white flowers lead to a palate that is very focused and pure, with lovely citrus flavours and a long, intense mineral finish. A well managed dry extract adds a textural dimension to the wine and completes the package.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw with green hues

Aroma

Spicy green apple with minerally, slate and lemon rind notes and a nuance of citrus blossom.

Palate

In the mold of a slightly riper style with citrus characters leaning toward grapefruit and mandarin rather than the typical lemony style of Mount Barker, but still with the characteristic minerally notes.

A succulent, juicy mid palate with vibrantly, fresh citrusy flavours that conclude with a mouth cleansing lemon sorbet-like finish.

Food Matching

An aperitif style which is perfect for delicately flavoured seafood dishes. Ideal partner for Albany oysters!

Cellaring Potential

The wine will reward now and up to 12 years in the bottle.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968 in a stroke of serendipity English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenet's, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire.

He first planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Riesling three years later.

The first wines from these young vines were tight and lean and showed the elegant spice and fruit characters for which this area was to become known.
