We all know that Bryan Martin who does a lot of the heavy lifting alongside Tim Kirk at famed winery Clonakilla, but he’s defining himself very nicely outside of his day job. Up in lights. This is a belter of a release (again).
Whoa. That perfume. That amaro and belt of spice through the palate. That silkiness. That medium weight and build of light sinewy tannin. That gloss. That fruit purity. It’s just brilliant. Strong scents of dark cherry, blueberries, rose petal, anise, alpine herbs. Effortless glide with good concentration of flavour rolls long through to its satiny conclusion. Beautiful wine. Go at this with a full tilt sprint, not a run, don’t walk.
