Spring is in the air and in my glass 💛 Introducing one of the recent new releases from Wills Domain Winery in WA’s Margaret River - Mystic Spring 2019 SSB (Semillon Sauvignon Blanc).
Mr Spittoon and I recently got stuck into this SSB while cooking up a BBQ dinner on the deck. Firstly I have to say, this wine is A.MAZ.ING on the nose. So vibrant and fresh. Here are our notes:
Nearly water white with a lemon tinge in the glass. On the nose it is so crisp and refreshing, think passionfruit and honeyed peaches with a fresh zest of lime and hint of florals. Those flavours glide through to the palate with a lick of Sauvy B minerality to go with it.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #gifted #wine #margaretriver — 23 days ago
Probably at its delectable best; this #margaretriver #chardonnay from #cullen ; colour with bits of brass says so; and palate has nice brulee-roast nuts; more aged fruit aromas than first stage types; acid taut keeping it medium bodied and no more; a good drink with coral trout; #kevinjohn #biodynamic #13.5% #AUD105 — 4 years ago
Excellent, excellent international chardonnay; restraint but the high-toned expected aromatics cleverly crafted; meal, funk, naturalness, citrus, neat on the nose; palate matured more; brulee, nut roast, yum portion, best aspect is the citrus acid softness; #drinknow ; but window is 2013-2017. #cullen #wa #margaretriver #kevinjohn #chardonnay #biodynamic #13point5alc — 4 years ago
Wow; how maturing #margaretriver #chardonnay does vary; see recent #cullen #2009 which was brassy, this gleaming green and plenty of it; #cullen restrained, this #capementelle is butch; nose power of smoke or burnt things, bottle age nose not simple, evidence of lees/ mlf from the smoke; palate chunky, lime juice, burnt toast you taste in 30 yo Eden Valley riesling; juicy smoke; rich, not terribly drying, acid taut, 13%, AUD 35, full bodied, no apparent reason for it to fade for a while; contained power. #uncorkedandcultivated #wineandfoodtours — 4 years ago
