Mike Bennie, Winefront writes "This was tiraged in 2012 and disgorged in the first months of 2015. It is a blend of 58% pinot noir, 42% chardonnay. And 1% magic. So Rudi Bauer says. “I wanted to say something special, but didn’t know what to say. Maybe semillon is in this wine”. Ahh Rudi… This comes from a single site too (in Bendigo). ‘The acidity is a fibre optic cable, radiates and carries flavours into the wine. There’s so much different information to show off in a wine’, finishes Rudi. Rich perfume but very fresh. Ginger biscuits, honey drizzled stone fruit, toffee apple, floral notes. Lovely. Light, fresh, creamy texture, frisky bubbles, saline acidity under toasty, lightly honeyed fruit characters. Sits in the palate so well. Elegant, superior feel. It’s very good."
