    Brilliant water like colour with a faint tinge of green around the outskirts. Intense lime, green apple and lemon scents are followed by chalky talc and steely mineral notes. Showing terrific power and concentration, piercing flavours of lime juice, granny smith apple and lemon are both racy and linear in their feel. Crunchy acidity forms the spine with wet steel, chalky talc and mineral characters the back drop. Outstanding structure for long term cellaring. Mouth-watering finish with an exceptionally long aftertaste.
    Drink over the next 8-10 years.
    Alc. 12.5%

    Other Reviews….
    Block 2 was planted in '75, a foundation block for viticulture in South West Australia. Hand-picked and sorted, pressed and chilled for fermentation. The wine has 9.2g/l of acidity, and attacks the mouth like a whirling dervish, but doesn't compromise the fruit. Drink by 2033.
