Alkoomi Frankland River Wandoo Semillon 2006

Preserved lemons over underlying tropical hints - green banana, a little papaya - citrus dominant, like licking sherbet off of a piece of slate.

Palate profile no as congruent with the intense aromatics, acid still present and settling nicely. 

A little honey becomes apparent once you allow it to settle in the glass, the wine then speaking more of its terroir with further slate present.

Moderate finish, feels a little truncated in the mouth, yet it does present a lasting flavour profile. 89 - Good

Tasted on: Friday 5th April, a Fruit Day
