75cl * Vegetarian * 12.5% ABV * Eden Valley, Australia
This wine is made from just 0.75 of an acre of 70 year old vines. The total production is just 40 cases... seven cases came to UK – and we have one!
50% of the fruit is fermented in stainless steel, the other half in French oak, giving this wine a wonderful honey and orange on the nose, followed by dried banana, bees wax, propolis and honey on the palate. There's a delicious lemon curd finish to it, too.
Drink now, but this will age with deceptive ease. We feel it's a serious rival to Vat 1 Semillon and fans of that cult wine won't be disappointed.
