Yangarra Estate, Small Pot, Clairette, McLaren Vale, 2017


Light gold in the glass. Brine, honeysuckle, beeswax, lemon zest and light stonefruit aromas. Assertive: minerally, tight and zesty with light tonic/quinine to the the subtle honeyed stone fruit. Long tail of delicate, tantalising precise fruit. A most delicious wine.
