Tasting Logic

 

High acid, unoaked and a mixture of lemon, lime and stone fruit could put you in Riesling. Unfortunately this vintage for some reason does not show the smoke, toast, honey, petrol (TDN) note associated with Eden or Clare Valley Riesling and would therefore be a little tricky to place if it was alone in a flight - if it was in an Australian flight then logic should take you here. The alcohol is higher than hunter Semillon and the lack of oak would probably steer you away from Chardonnay. The fruit isn't as well defined as it could be and so it is just Very Good quality.
