Region: Malmsbury - Macedon, VIC
Oatmeal, lemon zest, the smell of a broken green branch. The palate is broad, the core has a rocky density and the finish is fine and persistent. It’s shark-like in shape. Bitter flavours - endive, sorrel, push against the honeyed, satisfying flesh of fruit. Edgy, rocky, mineral flavour keeps the wine on the right side of the flabby/firm equation. These firm and slippery textures contrasted by a slight coarseness of oak.
A real mouthful in a wonderful, Victorian, uninhibited way. Zero Sulphur, very stable. Will age well in bottle / can be enjoyed over several days. Gentle decant is recommended (if you plan on finishing the bottle). - Notes from Pat
