Henschke Johanne Ida Selma Blanc de Noir MD 750mL
Pale straw-gold with golden hues. Complex aromas of citrus blossom, lemon curd, green plum skin and toasted brioche. A very fine bead in the glass gives rise to a lovely creamy mousse on the palate that feels at once lively and elegant. Complex flavours of green strawberry, lemon pith, crème brûlée and roasted cashew are balanced by bright, clean acidity and a mineral, slate texture providing focus, finesse and excellent length.
Critics Rating: JANE FAULKNER HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION MD 2019 Assemblage "A '19 assemblage of reserve pinot noir from '97 to '16. Wonderful bright straw hue with a glint of green; it's floral, citrussy and so fresh yet layers of flavour. Nougat, creamed honey and vanilla cream all reined in by fine acidity." 95 Points
