Old vineyard in Gingin, Swan District. A fresh new look for the maligned and often-overlooked wine growing area of greater Swan Valley/District. Bottled after eight months in tank. Should be as classic as Hunter semillon, Swan chenin should. Or so I says. Think on it before you scoff.
Ripe citrus scents, lemon balm and lemon blossom featuring too. Nice saline slug through the wine, juiciness inherent in texture, vivacious, clean and ultra-lemony flavours, a touch of faint nutty savouriness somewhere in there. Delicious! Tight, steely, controlled. Racy, clean and brilliant drinking now; should cellar well too. - Mike Bennie The Wine Front
