Region: Frankland River, WA
Such tension and energy here, and it feels kind of ‘Germanic’ in its intensity and drive. Woolly jumper/smoke, green apple, lime, crushed fennel and dried flowers. It’s dry, flinty and very crunchy, the bite of Granny Smith apple, with a lavender perfume, intense acidity, and chalky feel marks it out as a compelling wine. And the length. It’s sure to age beautifully. Notes from Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
