Sometimes it happens that you know it is going to be good, but as much honestly.
Texture of an aged Bordeaux which means the most refined silk.
Hunter benchmarks like leather and dried red flowers. Pencil lead, orange and watermelon rinds plus pomegranate.
Simply an outstanding wine that I wish everyone could meet one day to understand what this region can give.
1987 is indeed a great vintage there and back in those days Wyndham Estate was still up to its reputation.
George Wyndham planted the Dalwood vineyard back in 1830 with the plants handed to him by James Busby and apparently that was the first established vineyard in Australia.

Domaine Lucci Wildman Pinot Noir 2015: We're not sure what's behind the "Wildman" name. We've heard it makes reference to Tim Wildman, MW extraordinaire and leader of the fabulous James Busby wineland tours. Or it could easily refer to Anton himself - not a stretch given this is the man who's been known to wear hot pants to official Aussie tasting events. Or may it refers to the general wildness of the wine - whole bunch, nothing-done-to-it pinot noir that manages to be juicy and earthy, structured and gluggable, a touch funky but not at all dirty. If you've had the Noir de Florette, this one is the deeper, darker, very slightly more grown up version. It's awesome. And a great peek into all that's new and different... and wild... from the land down under.
