Region: Loxton, Riverland
Alluring. Textural. Aromatic.
Down the rabbit hole, armed with an Italian grape known as GRECO.
Experimental winemaker, Samuel J Smith, had a play with some organically-farmed GRECO from Loxton up in the Riverland. This 7th edition of 'Beast' is a limelight on Sam's penchant for the patient infusion of skins (and all its resulting, alluring wonders). The induction of cherrywood smoked notes from its time in oak adds another level of intrigue here.
Another one-off wine; as scarce as can be.
