SIXERS MIXED WHITE DOZEN
3 x bottles of Semillon, Hunter Valley, NSW
Vibrant in colour – a touch more than usual due to the sunshine. Lovely florals and lemon grass aromas. Mouth filling flavours of pear and lemon pith balancing the zesty acid backbone. The aromas and fruit weight belie the 10.8% alcohol and reconfirms that the Hunter Valley produces fruit at optimal ripeness and much lower sugar levels.
3 x bottles of Cricket Pitch White, NSW
Lovely pale yellow colour with green tints. Citrus pith and florals on the nose rather than big tropical notes. Very appealing. Initial flavours of citrus and melon, light cool palate at 11.55 alcohol. Grapefruit, finger lime and a zesty acidity adds to the structure. A perfect summer drink paired with a wide range of food.
3 x bottles of Pinot Gris, Currency Creek, SA
Pale green tints with just a bit more yellow background than usual. Herbaceous and gooseberry notes carry to the palate at a slightly higher alcohol of 13%, with more rockmelon and tropical citrus. Lovely mouth feel and length from the juicy acidity. Excellent drinking as the weather warms up to close out this decade.
3 x bottles of Umpires Chardonnay, Central Ranges, NSW
A very appealing yellow/green tinted colour. Tropical aromas with plenty of primary fruit as a young wine. Minimal oak influence and adds a slight bran meal note. More tropical fruit on the palate balanced by bright zesty acidity. An excellent flavoursome Chardonnay.
