    Winegent, I think you're a bit confused. This wine is not a white, it's a Shiraz (technically 98% Shiraz, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon). It has a distinctly smoky nose; on the palate, it tastes much like a smokehouse; bacon, smoke, and salt. As a matter of fact, the saltiness of this wine is quite (unpleasantly) predominant, which can be common in Aussie wines, particlarly from the Padthaway region (Padthaway is know for its salty groundwater). The well-concealed tannins give it necessary structure without being overbearing, yet I can't get past the saltiness.

    Deep colour intensity of inky purple; a lovely shade. Slow developing legs, plump and luscious with a deep berry nose. Ultra-smooth mouthfeel, spice and rich, intense ripe fruit. Well-balanced and silky. The spice (black pepper) turns to anise, then to rich berry in the complex, interesting (and long) finish. Great stuff.
