PV Tasting Notes
The 2006 Senses SBS is another wine which has developed gorgeously well, now fully mature, still possesses a light lemoney green hue, this resembles a white Graves. Barrel fermented and aged in new and seasoned oak, this is elegant, slightly smoky, with gently roasted nut, melony and honey scented nose. The palate displays tropical fruit (Papaya and Citrus with hints of Mango) is very well balanced, with medium body and a long flavourful fresh finish. Should drink well for several more years.
Pale green/yellow colour, musky, floral and quite incisive on the nose, with an array of fruit lemongrass, gooseberry, lychee and herb qualities: in the mouth pear, green papaya, mango, basil and curry leaf. A silky mid-weight palate showing precise, tangy fruit flavours lifted by bright acidity and dusty mineral notes. The interplay of fruit, mineral and herb tones is really enjoyable, nicely done.
