I reckon Clonakilla is onto something with this slipstreamed style, destined for, well, now, very youthful consumption.
Smells righteous in just-ripe apricot, lemon blossom, steel. In the palate, a touch too steely-tanky, a little rugged with bristling acidity,
but pulls off light apricot and apricot kernel characters and that zing of acidity means refreshment time finishes the wine. DNA of viognier means there’s a bit of richness even in the body of a lighter, fresher style. Good drink.
Super fresh and frisky and, in general, keen to put any preconceived ideas of 'varietal character' far behind it.
Drinking pleasure? A good deal of it.
There are stone fruit, spice, apple blossom and citrus flavours here and they march straight on with the job: nothing heady, nothing oily, nothing in your face. Drinking pleasure? A good deal of it.
Vibrant, fresh and
Great drinking from Clonakilla Wines.
