Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia. 14.5% screwcap.
Lots of different flavours, all over the place, so let me sum up the wine first… a sleek soft fat alcoholic sweet wine with savoury tones – some 2000 Chateaunef-du-Pape wines come (somewhat) close in style. Very approachable.
Sweet but saved by smokey oak. And the slightly cowshed finish is attractive – really.
Something of a show pony wine yet not in the commercial show style, sort of show pony for the cognoscenti. A$27
