(2024) A single vineyard wine from very old vines in the Hunter Valley. Lemon, custard and a leafy, dill-like herbal note. There’s a sense of honey and ‘fatness’ to this already, some sesame seed-like nuttiness, which will develop over the next decade. The palate is all zipping lemon and lime at the moment. There’s a lovely sour lemon acidity that puckers the mouth, but there is weight and that honeyed sense of fullness to the mid-palate. Again toast – even hot buttered toast to stretch the analogy (but I think valid) – lingers along with that fat, lemony juiciness of fruit and acid at the core. Potential for a higher score.
