This wine comes from ‘bought fruit’ but there’s grand consideration in the relationships with vines and site, here from the King Valley, though VS&B call Beechworth home. Riesling dominant aromatic white here, produced ala Austrian inspiration in a round about way. Higher altitude, fresher vibes, spice, basket pressed for texture. Consideration in spades. One of Australia’s most dynamic and legacy-making wine projects, though project makes it sound a touch twee. Citrus spectrum scents, whiff of that greenery of lemon myrtle, almost an ozone scent, flint and wet slate, mineral charged at least. Scintillating in the palate. Rapier-thrust of cool, lean, bristling citrus-green apple-white flesh pear flavours and a starburst of explosive mineral character, though the finish has a lick of alpine herbs. This is such wonderful drinking, ballistically refreshing, quietly complex. Has it all. 93+ Points Mike Bennie Winefront, Tasted : OCT17, Alcohol : 12%, Closure : Screwcap, Drink : 2017 - 2025
