Maybe I’m a slow learner… perhaps I am. Because I feel like I am finally catching on. The Burgundian clones that provide the fruit for this wine are the birthers of something quite unique. This is fine, layered, and spicy, at the same time as being rich, complex and full.

TASTING NOTE:

Maybe I’m a slow learner… perhaps I am. Because I feel like I am finally catching on. The Burgundian clones that provide the fruit for this wine are the birthers of something quite unique. This is fine, layered, and spicy, at the same time as being rich, complex and full. It doesn’t have the fat opulence of the Gin Gin clone – it is marked by a tighter, more controlled acid-line and fruit flavours that stray into the realm of preserved citrus. The nose is redolent with salty/briny curry leaves, which overlays yellow peach and yellow stone fruit. The palate is rich and complex, multilayered and long. Restrained classy, and a magnificent (and I mean magnificent) match to pan-fried Snapper with dukkah, curry leaf and cauliflower hummus. I recently enjoyed a bottle of the 2011 chardonnay, which I can attest was rich, bright and full, a different beast to this like it had moved through some magical doorway of time. Highly recommended to put this away, or at the very least forget about it for five or so years.

Food Match  An excellent match right now with local Marron gently poached in a cream and vermouth sauce with just a hint of chilli.
