There’s something quite pure about fruit forward wines

There’s something quite pure about fruit forward wines, perhaps it’s the “less is more” concept, or maybe I just prefer less worked wines. Either way, fruit flavour is important, and that’s probably why the Melrose Pinot Noir, and now Chardonnay from Springvale have tickled my fancy. ⁠ Intense and fresh on the nose, white peach, grapefruit, green grapes and citrus florals with a very slight stony edge. Upfront and zesty on the palate, lovely weight and texture, stone-fruits and lemons, green grapes again tailing off with a mineral lick to the finish. It’s a wine that tastes like a wine made from grapes should taste. A fairly obvious statement, valid nonetheless, and I really like that. ⁠
