Forester Estate Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2014
While it makes good sense, and we copied it from Bordeaux and everything, Australia seems a bit shy about it. That's really silly. It suits our summers.
Well, not when you're wearing it.
Beneath a naked moon.
It's all marshmallow and lollyshop with a stacked fruiterer's barrow coming out of control through the window in slow motion.
Raspberries and redcurrants and mulberries everywhere: they're all over the musk sticks.
And some suave French wood for pious adults who can't afford to enjoy that initial collision in the way us kids enjoy cartoons.
As it plays around in your mouth, its slender and sinuous form does that magical transformation from silky and elegant viscosity to velvet, with the right level of acid and drying fine-grained tannins sorting all the slick stuff out, letting them all trickle through the organoleptic division in the right order at the right pace.
