Twisted Gum White Blend 2012

Tim Coelli of Twisted Gum was savvy enough to send a few samples of his wines out for review ahead of Queensland Wine Week (disclosure: I am a part of the organisational team behind QWW). 

A 'bitsa' blend here - and one that largely works. Opens with citrus, cut grass and fresh green herbs - aromatically akin to a sem/sauv blanc on opening, with time underlying tropicals come forward.

Palate possesses razor sharp acidity; settling over time and delivering a thrust of citrus, stone fruit and suggestions of stony mineral. 

Bit of textural interest here too - all up fresh, hints of flesh and a wine that held up well over 2-3 days of tasting. 90
