From Upper Goulburn, the fruit spends around 14 months in old oak, on lees. Lots of complexity and personality built into the wine from the more-or-less hands off process here. Ben Haines a wine producer to keep a keen eye on.

Curious but engaging perfume offers honeysuckle, faint buttery notes, green melon, old spice cupboard scents. Savoury-ish start, flavours echo the bouquet in a washy, juicy, finely textured palate that stretches out to a sticky/tacky finish. Interesting that sticky finish, but not bad, just unexpected. An expressive white here with a touch of herbal complexity; it‰۪s a pretty elegant wine actually and drinks with ease, and should satisfy those bored with 9-5 wines and wanting a bit of a jolt in their white wine repertoire.
