- Closure: Cork
Smithbrook is a part of the Petaluma stable and was recently purchased by the group as Pemberton was considered to be one of the 'bright' new lights of Australian wine with the potential to consistently produce excellent quality fruit and wine. Unfortunately for Brian Croser, this wine misses out on the complexity stakes. Winemaker, Michael Symonds has barrel fermented this wine in order to maximise complexity. Pale watery straw colour. The nose is impressive and starts off with intense aromas of ripe gooseberry passionfruit and tropical fruits. On the palate the wine does a double back flip and brings forward an austerity and range of unripe fruit flavours that make this wine difficult to drink. Lacking both power and persistence the unripe hard flavour of unripe gooseberry and unripe passionfruit drive the flavour spectrum to the Point where one might as well eat a very unripe Granny Smith apple. It all goes to show you that it's not the winemaker or viticulturist that is in charge, but the 'Big Fella' upstairs.
