Huon Hooke said Every wine I ™ve tasted of McLaren Vale ™s Duane Coates has been excellent Highly impressive wines “ a style that bridges the gap between fruit driven Australian style and savoury complex wines of old world Europe. Lisa Perrotti Brown. from leading international website erobertparker.com said “..a breath of fresh air in this area where a lot of producers seem to be following the herd down that incredibly ripe and sometimes over ripe path that has caused not a few producers to come unstuck in heat wave and drought conditions. These are superbly crafted. well priced wines that are wholeheartedly recommended ™.
This 2012 blend comprises 67% barrel fermented Semillon (25% new French) from Mt Compass and Adelaide Hills. with 33% Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc fermented in stainless steel. 2012 season produced a near perfect growing season long ripening without any adverse weather. Great concentration of fruit. excellent line and length. This wine was inspired by white Bordeaux to give you an idea of style… Great food wine. Light straw in colour. the nose shows restrained tropical fruits accompanied by lemongrass and a hint of brioche. After 12 months in bottle this wine is singing ! Gorgeous wine brimming with citrus. guava and mineral zing followed by more ish toasty characters leading into a long. crisp mouthwatering finish.
Oodles of sophistication in this fine wine.
