Kaesler Wines Stonehorse Palomino Dry 2013

From Barossa Valley Palomino vines planted in 1961, this wine has been made into a dry table style rather than into its usual fortified apera style wine. Unusual and not without interest.
Pale gold colours with a light greenish tinge.
Smells grassy and floral with some petroleum and slatey mineral action occurring in the background. It has a Riesling-esque feel about the perfume and indeed the taste.
Zesty lime and citrus flavours over nectarine and talc fill the light to medium weight palate. Fresh and clean. 

The mouthfeel is quite fat and as the wine progresses through the mouth it peaks mid-palate before dropping off towards the finish.

Dry and fresh in its overall feel. Not a complex wine but it is easy to enjoy. Serve well chilled.

Spinifex Lola 2015

An intriguing and convincing blend if there ever was one. Semillon 60%, Ugni Blanc 23%, Viognier 12%, Clairette 3% and 2% Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains from Barossa Valley fruit. Some of the Semillon and Ugni Blanc vines have been around since the 1850's !  

Pale golden straw coloured wine in the glass.  
There is a fragrant bouquet of nectarines, lemon blossom, florals and herbs that is also so fresh you just want to dive in and experience.

Pithy texturally with honey, citrus, pear and green apple flavours complemented by sweet garrigue spices and dusty tannins. Pleasingly balanced, juicy with an impressive savoury length.
This is a subtle and delicately flavoured dry wine, a testament to the exceptional winemaking skills of Peter Schell and Magali Gely.
