Other Reviews....
This one is a blend of roussanne, marsanne, viognier and grenache blanc. Fermented in foudre and old oak barrels. A little colder in hell as these white wines roll out of Wild Duck Creek. I love it.
Textural feast! Freshness! Fruit and savoury qualities! It’s a beautiful, mellow wine, confident in its slouch and core of minerally, tingly acidity. Plushness but vibrant, a squeak of sappy herbal notes, quince and preserved lemon, lemon myrtle and fennel, touches of sourdough and salted crackers. It’s a wonderful wine, generous but fresh, long and luxurious, feels complex and bright here in youth, but you know that these varieties, and time in cellar, produce beautiful, honeyed ooze. This is destined for that. Drink 2022 - 2032.
