From Watervale, a Clare Valley area better known for its Rieslings. Aromas and flavors are light and pretty—think hay, olive oil, citrus peel and light stone fruit. In the mouth the wine is round, with some viscosity. Would probably pair very well with scallops, or a seafood-based stew.
Nut and stone fruit notes vie for center stage on this wine, and the race is neck in neck. Smoky, nutty aromas smolder against a backdrop of pear on the nose, and on the palate, peach takes the lead with nuts, toast and butter falling into the background. It’s a medium-weight wine, straightforward and good.
