Fermented in Italian concrete and amphora. Brilliant pale straw colour with flashes of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Drifting from the glass are aromas of lime, red apple, orange blossom and honeysuckle followed by hints of mandarin and subtle flinty notes. Racing across the palate are lime and tangy mandarin fruits with some lemon, orange rind, faint honeysuckle and wet steel lingering through the back half. Zippy, mineral infused acidity finishing bone dry, tense and taut.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 11.5%

Other Reviews…..
Fruit sourced from the Canberra District including estate-grown and the Hilltops region. Then, as is the Bryan Martin way, there’s some skin contact to bolster texture and fine phenolics before it all settles in vessels of concrete, ceramic and seasoned foudre. This is something else and delicious. Heady aromatics wafts of lemon blossom, ginger flower and spices, yet the palate steals the show. Textural, waxy, stony and complex with a silk-line of acidity all the way through. A cracking drink on its own or with food. Drink by 2033.
