Hollick Wines The Charlatan Savagnin 2014

There's not many alternate varietals in the Coonawarra region so I was surprised to see Savagnin on the list at Hollick. They actually have an additional four alternates in the ground including Rosada, Tempranillo, Barbera and Sangiovese.

This Savagnin was purchased and planted in 2006 as Albarino before the CSIRO cock up was discovered in 2009.

Fresh apples and cut pear, there's a touch of marigold flower aroma wafting on by ever to subtly. Cleansing in the mouth with a dab of spice, some fruit sweetness teases at the death.

Available at the cellar door or mail order only.

Drink now.
