Taltarni, Fumé Blanc, Pyrenees/Coal River Valley, 2015

Rich creamy yellow melon, prickly nettle, subtle nut cream and passion fruit coulis. Textural, yet soft and creamy palate (lees stirring and barrel work) before smears of tropical yellow fruit and and even navel orange citrus like acidity. Some oak spice highlights before a definite sauvignon blanc green capsicum finish. Has some complexity and very much a food wine.

RRP: $26

Alc: 13.5%
