Lady A 2016
Yet another classic Lady A, the 2016 vintage presents golden-lime in the glass, preceding a rich, opulent nose: lemon curd and vanilla bean, backed by a light, oatmeal-and-cedar wood note. On the palate it is generous, lush and dense. Sumptuous and fleshy, with nut, lemon and creaminess rolling throughout, it is structured but still subtle enough to avoid becoming overpowering. A bright finish lingers, suggesting chamomile, almond and nougat. Will drink wonderfully with seafood (shellfish, particularly). Best served this side of cold, it blossoms with a little air.
‘A benchmark white wine in Australia—often anticipated by me but often years apart in seeing.’
—Mike Bennie, Winefront, 95 points
