This is from a 1ha block planted in 1999, and as the skin-fermented component (about 1/2) has been introduced (and fine-tuned) to the making of this marque, it has been getting better! There is a wild, exotic paw-paw, ginger and Danish pastry element but the palate and finish are quite restrained and beautifully balanced. Randall.
“Apricot, fresh pineapple, citrus blossom, a sort of salt and pepper thing happening too, along with a subtle smokiness, ginger and seaweed. It’s juicy and fleshy in tropical fruit flavour, but has a spicy chalky skinsy grip to balance, almost a green spicy olive oil texture and character, along with lemon zest and green olive brine and sweet grapefruit acidity on a finish of good length. Complex. Interesting. Different. All good things.” 94pts – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
