2010 Clemens Hill Fumé Blanc

You read right.  Nine year old Tasmanian Fumé Blanc that belies its age.  I’ve always been a fan of this Clemens Hill style of wine but it has always been the current release that I’ve had the pleasure of trying (or should I have said drinking?).  I was stoked to be gifted this to try from Rob Ware of Clemens Hill.

Still quite youthful in appearance, starting off with a green, but not an under-ripe character, with more of a herbal note.  A touch of citrus, a hint of peaches, nice texture, and sits on the palate very nicely too, and the oak has integrated beautifully.  There is a hint of acid still present on the moderate to good length finish which rounds out a very impressive wine.

This may not be available now but I can certainly recommend the current release (check it out here).
