Description

Aromatic and expressive nose detailed through a line of pear, grilled lemon and grapefruit. Nougat, brioche, cinnamon, nutmeg, fennel seed, samphire, jalapeno and chamomile sit in the background, providing subtle complexity. Tightly coiled and woven palate delicately layered with a diligently textured mid palate. There is a salty-brine thread like throughout the palate. Concentrated white nectarine, pear and lemon are the key hallmark primary fruits, subtle toasted hazelnuts underpinned by a finite sherbet acid thread with a mineral acid line. Bright straw-yellow. Fresh melon, tangerine, vanilla and a hint of ginger on the intensely perfumed nose. Juicy and tightly focused on the palate, offering Meyer lemon, honeydew, white peach, honeysuckle and sweet butter flavors accented by a smoky mineral nuance. Silky and focused on the impressively persistent finish, which leaves chalky mineral and floral notes behind. Bright straw-yellow.

Such impressive richness and concentration to the fruit here with a wealth of ripe apricot and peach on the nose. Some gentle hazelnut, too. The palate is so fleshy and vividly intense and offers a very flavorful style, in the classically powerful yet balanced Margaret River mode. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
