Patrick of Coonawarra Fumé Blanc 2014
Fermented on lees in second use French oak puncheons and the then aged for a further twelve months, the final result is a mix of freshness with delicious textural appeal.
Tropical fruit headed by subdued canned pineapple, green melon and lychees then shifts to light creamy flavours not too dissimilar to a lightish whipped butter. It's not a heavy clumsy use of oak that's for sure. The long finish fills the mouth with a lick of pineapple again on exit. A great little package.
