Mount Mary Triolet 2019


| /

The Wine 

 65% Sauvignon Blanc; 25% Semillon; 10% Muscadelle. The 2019 Triolet is somewhat defined by the explosive complexity of aromatics that burst from the glass. Some leaner lime, grapefruit and freshly cut grass aromatics combine with passionfruit and green apple characters, giving this wine so much intrigue on the nose. There is also a savoury element of slate, seashells and beeswax. The palate shows brilliant intensity of flavour but is held in check by a strict line of acidity. It follows on with flavours of lime, stone fruit, nashi pear and lees-derived complexities adding a creaminess in the mouth. The phenolics are perhaps a little understated compared with previous vintages but are still present, offering texture and grip on the particularly long finish. 

Sam Middleton, Mount Mary

"Delicate, yet flavoursome. It has a fine glossy gently glycerol texture that’s shot through with flint, and pure cool acidity. A subtle fennel frond perfume, discreet pine-lime flavour, perfume of vanilla bean and sweet dried herb, and a bell clear finish of superb length. Graceful and so lovely to drink. A top release."

The Review

96 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front 

"65/25/10% Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon/Muscadelle. Often nervy and tight on release, this is taut, linear and refreshingly dry. It does open up to reveal its savouriness, although there's a touch of lemon meringue pie, without the sweetness of course. It's mouth-watering, complex, compelling and unique."
