“WHITE WINE OF THE YEAR... We tend to be keen to salute our Quaff

champions – like this superbly consistent, style-breaking white from the

Riverina. There are green bean and green pepper characters on the nose and

palate with some complexing gunflint, smoky notes. Its lean, tightly structured

with zesty acidity adding a refreshing quality on the finish.”

PETER FORRESTAL, 2009 QUAFF
