Perfect, pale green colour and lifted grapefruit aromas. The minimal oak sits nicely with the fine, juicy citrus flavours on the palate accompanied by subtle bran meal. The driving force of this wine is the acidity – long and pure. Approximately 90% from Beechworth and the balance from Orange, the final components of this wine basically selected themselves. Another top-notch vintage!
2016 Area Blend Shiraz
A perfect mid-density colour with light purple tints. Red fruit aromas of cherry and strawberry. Dusty hints and vanillin oak compliment the pastille fruit flavours. Fine ripe tannins and lovely acidity carry through to a clean, long finish.
Next Wednesday we will be looking at the following wines:
2019 Hunter Valley Semillon and 2019 Indigo Vineyard Tempranillo
... and to make things easier we have combined these into a twin pack.
