- VIC - Mornington Peninsula
Delicious white wine from Port Phillip Estate.
This is a pretty white wine. Floral. Redolent of honeysuckle. There are brine, nectarine, ginger and melon notes and a whisper of Turkish delight. It has a firmness, a backbone of acid, a semblance of chalkiness to its texture. But that fruit prettiness provides the spunk factor. Rating 91 - Drink by 2015, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au (JUN/2014).
Pale straw-green; more welcoming than is usual for arneis, which may sound like a good thing, but in fact simply indicates a broad base of citrus characters, subtly different to those of other varieties, but not definitively so. You are left to wonder what might happen with time in bottle. Rating 88 - Drink by 2017, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014).
Winery Tasting Notes
A bright pale lemon straw colour.
The nose is youthful with aromas of ripe pear, quince and hints of jasmine and ginger.
A soft and textured palate with undertones of ginger seen on the nose, combined with cinnamon spice and a refreshing lemon flavoured finish.
