Fleshy white peach and creamy oak shone through with some Arnott's Shortbread Cream biscuit type flavours skipping about. There is a a little toasty character hovering around too.
Initially I thought the wine was short and lacked drive. Day two and three allowed it to show its true colours and it certainly found its mojo. Wow!
The delicate fruit is lip smacking good and the texture that developed over those few days was superb. Fruit to oak balance is gorgeous.
A smart wine indeed.
Only 350 dozen made and worth hiding some in the cellar.
