Another outstanding release of what is arguably Australia’s greatest white wine.

Brilliant very pale straw colour with distinctive greenish tinge around the edges and watery hue. The nose reveals a complex array of aromas with cashew and white peach intermeshed followed by some citrus, a hint of cinnamon, almond and subtle toasty oak. Full, rich and concentrated the palate delivers a seamless flavour profile of ripe peach, some honeycomb, creamy cashew, citrus, a touch of nougat and spicy oak. Clean dry finish with excellent textural mouthfeel and acid structure. Superb depth with very long and persistent aftertaste of cashew, white peach, spicy oak, a touch of honeycomb and light almond biscuit.

Other Reviews....
Aromatically tight, but expansive and expressive in the mouth, pouring out its pear, green guava and fig flavors in a generous stream, with glints of spice. Comes together smoothly on a deftly balanced frame to let the finish sail on and on. Drink now through 2030.
