This was a cool and moderate vintage, and as such the Girl Talk is a true reflection of site and vintage conditions. The wine dispays wet pebble and young pear and granny smith apple fruit notes with an underlying cinnamon spice. The wine has terrific structure similar to riesling, a leaner more elegant style than the 2010. A vintage that will reward cellaring.

Finally, I judged one of the "other white" classes and came up with by far the best Savagnin I have tasted: the '11 Tscharke Girl Talk (Barossa), full of flavour and with excellent texture. This variety is here to stay.Score - 56/60 TOP GOLD , James Halliday, The Weekend Australia Magazine (SEP/2011)
