This wine looks amazing in the glass. Brilliantly polished, sparklingly clear and pale straw in colour. Simply stunning.
The nose is pretty and floral with ester aromas of pear skins and a creamy background that reminds us of “Milko” lollies. The use of Jura oak (Origin of Savagnin) has markedly enhanced the florals in this wine.
Like all past Caméléon’s there is a depth & complexity that is always about mouthfeel and texture which is well supported by yellow peach & toasted almond flavours. Drink now – 2026.
With a bit of extra body in the wine enjoy with Salmon dressed in a Ginger Soy and served with Asian greens.
2019 marks the three-peat of vintages in the Hunter Valley and what a fantastic year it was. Pale golden straw in colour and with aromas of fresh cut hay, cumquat and honeydew there is a beautiful freshness to the wine. Hints of pink musk and vanillan oak add to the complexity and with time in the glass the wine really begins to shine.
Flavours of blood orange citrus and white nectarine are ably supported by fine phenolics giving texture to the wine with a wet river stone minerality on the finish. Don’t be afraid to decant but drink now – 2027.
For wine of this style enjoy with King George Whiting with a blood orange, rocket and pomegranate salad.
