About

Here is yet another unique wine from creative Yarra Valley winemaker Tony Fikkers. You've got to love Tony's winemaking philosophy: _“I want to give people boozability and interest at the right price point”, he explained to us when popping in to DD HQ. Right on! Well this has all of that in spades. It's 80% Riesling and 20% Gewurztraminer, all hand-picked from a single Yarra Valley vineyard and crafted very naturally into a mere 65 dozen wines. I remember remarking to Tony when we tried it that I was glad it "wasn't too Gewurzy" - these blends can get a bit over-the-top when the Gewurztraminer component takes over proceedings. No such problem here, this is absolutely perfectly balanced with a delicious array of citrus, apple and tropical fruit flavours, hints of spice and custard, lively-enough acidity and subtle phenolics. 93 points from Gary Walsh _("A delightful wine with a curious and engaging personality.")_ and another fascinating release from Tony Fikkers that is, as per his plans, reeking with boozability and interest.

What it Tastes Like

"Juicy. Spicy. Perfumed. Lychees and apple, dusty spicy oak, musk, citrus. It’s soft and plump, cinnamon studded apples, ruby red grapefruit, gentle chalky phenolics, softness and lush flavours, though still fresh and not in the slightest cloying. A delightful wine with a curious and engaging personality." - Gary Walsh
