Other Reviews....
Compelling conversation around this wine, with fruit specifically isolated and selected for a wine to celebrate eucalyptus character. Parcels of fruit came from vines closest to thatches of eucalyptus trees. Cabernet.
It’s such a compelling wine, you hound the glass, yes, eucalyptus is distinct, almost resinous to taste, but cabernet fruit and tannin are up to task and it feels like serious seasoning rather than gimmick. Peppermint, plum, tense sheath of tannin, pepper, dark chocolate jostle with that gum leaf seasoning. Texture is superb, length is too. Not a curio, a fantastic expression. Drink 2021 - 2025.
