A lithe, sinewy blend; medium-bodied and highly savoury. I like this sort of wine. More European, without being pretentious or shedding its Australian identity. Currant, pencil lead and graphite notes meander across an astringent bow of sage-clad tannin. Verdant without being underripe. The finish is gentle. Supple. An Aussie Petit Chateau. Long enough for an appetising drink across the short to medium term.
