Right across South Eastern Australia, the cool vintage resulted in excellent white wines, typically made – as here – with high levels of natural acidity, and often a desirable edge to the fruit on the bouquet (again, as here). The heart of this wine is the power and intensity of its grapefruit-accented palate.
