Mitchell Harris Fumé Blanc 2013

A touch more forward than the 2012 instance, but you can see the family line inherent within.

Opens with citrus, moving to a little lime custard and a suggestion of tropical fruit. Subtlety, terroir and technique here serve to mute the inherently overt nature of the variety. A little green herb and asparagus in the mix here too.

Good balnce of acid and phenolics, the two combine to seek out the furthest reaches of the palate. There's a creamy/ milkiness here too, it is a wine of textural interest on the finish - waxy, rounded. 92
