The Nepenthe Vineyard is located at Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills. Bright straw colour. Restrained yet perfumed nose of exotic fruit, confectionary and spice, followed by a ripe mango and paw paw back palate. Moderate length, clean acid finish, followed by aftertaste of mango, confectionary, spice and paw paw.Cellar 1-2 years (2002-2003).
Retasted: July 2002
The wine is already showing some developed character. Bright pale straw colour. Aroma of spice, mandarin and tropical fruit, followed by a hint of spice and loquot. The palate is drier than the nose suggests, with flavours of semi ripe mandarin emerging over a tropical fruit background. The acidity is fine, but there appears to be a slight dilation of back palate flavours. Aftertaste of tropical fruit and spice.
