This wine always displays a thrilling backbone of acidity, and the nervous tension carries through from the citrus blossom, mealy bouquet, to the taut, savoury and thoroughly engaging palate; long and minerally to conclude. Rating 95 -Drink by 2020 -JAMES HALLIDAY AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 2013
Winery Tasting Notes
