White peaches, yellow plums, oxidative style. Like an aged Burgundy. Huge minerality. Decanted over 2 hours. Stunning.

Crazy hazelnuts and burnt twig on the nose. Bright intense minerality and acidity right away after opening

Trebbiano in all it’s splendor! Valentini is a master. Fresh, youthful, essential oils and amazing length. How do they do it? Just delicious.

A very fine petillance giving a somewhat cloudy appearance. Quite youthful for a 7 year old white. Nutty and Lemon aromas and flavours with a cleansing acidity which will carry it forward. A favourite of Michaela our sommelier. I now have a new found admiration for Trebbiano, a variety used in Australia in the past to make bulk uninteresting Wine. This is refined and complex continuing to show different nuances with air. One of the 1001 Wines and one can see why.

Classic reductive funkyness. This is a seriously ageworthy bottle. 7 years have done nothing to this wine and it will easily age for decades. Super tight, concentrate, packed with power and austerity. Gun flint, hazelnuts, lemon peel, chamomile, smokeness (bon fire) and a strong sense of minerality.
