Aroma & Palate
|Raspberry, green fruits, sea air|
Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay
(Review is of the 2016 vintage)
I bumped into winemaker Jono Hersey at The Ed in Adelaide while helping Taras Ochota unload some stock into the drive through bottle-o. What a nice chap. Handed me a glass of rose on sight, and didn’t judge the purchase of two tins of Dr Tim’s as we departed. The new rose is good fodder for pre-midday drinking, and dare I say, so is this, a fizz-y wine of chardonnay and pinot noir with a salmon hue. Excellent value, is the feel here. And from a good place.
Strawberries and cream, but a gentle waft, accompanied by faint toastiness, nougat, brioche. The palate is lean yet vigorous in bubbles, brisk in chalky acidity, awash with oyster shell-sea spray mineral feel. A lick of sweet, red berry fruit, and the fizz takes the wine away to its brisk, puckering finish. Easy to like this.
