Bird on a Wire Marsanne 2011

Texture, texture, texture. Not overlooking the aromatic department, which itself shows a creamy mix of white flowers, a soap-nut-toffee note with a fresh herb and honeyed edge. 

A roll call of descriptors could be peeled off, but in some respects that would detract from where, for me, its true interest lies.

Creamy, savoury, a sharp pinprick of acidity that provides focus and conclusion on the palate. There's a mineral edged dance, a tango across the tongue. 

 It's too clever to be outright smashable, but by jove it commands to be savoured. 95 - Excellent
