My key takeaway from this Wine was Yummy! Aromatic white florals and stone fruit seamlessly evolved into a citrussy parade of lime and a hint of orange. And texture for days. Great wine, very easy drinking...imagine it in ten years (Oh Wow).
"Sandalwood, preserved citrus, black tea leaves and jasmine seamlessly merge into the more expected Frankland River riesling characters of lemon zest, green apple skins and chalk. In the mouth, the acidity is like a coiled spring, cushioned by voluminous fruit padding on all sides. This is svelte and streamlined, but it has presence and viscosity, too. There is subtle structural integrity and a spool of lingering flavour through the finish ... what a superb wine. This is generous, but it's tense and taut too... disguised austerity. Slatey."

"Flavour in the acidity. That’s what it’s all about here. The lines are very straight and ultra direct but they are more than that; they are conduits. Lime, talc, mandarin and florals with something almost jibe in the centre of the palate there. A trail of gun smoke enters the aftertaste. This is excellent."
