Equivalent Bottle Price £29.99
Winemaker Dane Johns loves the wines of Greco di Tufo, and so was particularly excited to discover this parcel of grapes, which he believes could well represent the only plantings of Greco in Australia. In his words: "This is a special wine for me. Needless to say, this cuvee was treated with the respect and care it deserved. This wine was not pressed but had the free run juice 'drained' off. A particularly expensive way to ma ke wine but I think the results speak for themselves. Unfortunately though, this also means there was not much of it..."
The nose is very refined and complex with a dominating feel of an alpine forest with notes of pine resin, nettle, fresh cut herbs, uplifting florals and a lemon citrus note that holds it all together. The palate is much of the same, exhibiting great energy and harmonious balance with nothing out of place. An extremely structured wine that really becomes defined with some air. It has great acidity, freshness and salinity with super-fine chalky tannins to round it out.
