But this style of wine is far from conservative and is deemed a "trial" by winemaker Robin Moody. Fermented in stainless steel and finished in old Hungarian oak where it sat for approximately twelve months before bottling.
Intriguing aromas of dried passionfruit, slight musk and snow pea. Barrel work has added to the textural element on the palate though the fruit seemed a fraction tight. Impressive length, there is enough there to make you sit up in attention. A wine very much suited to a creamy pasta or creamy chicken dish.
Only two barrels made. I like wines with a point of difference and this certainly gets a tick for what it delivered.
Cellar door release only.
