This comes from Slate Creek Vineyard in Willunga. Picked in two tranches, one for green spectrum and freshness, one for the flesh. Clever. Natural ferment, no adds, yada yada.
Stellar drinking. Stacks of flavour but loads of crunch. Bite of sour-sweet fruit but some softness there too. Sprinkled with pepper, laced with dried green herbs. Has that slightly bloody-ferrous thing going on too. Mouth-watering acidity. Just shy of medium weight. Far out. This is great.
