Lot 14
1x Lone Quince Mixed Dozen.
6 Bottles x Lone Quince Cabernet Merlot - 'A wine with high cheek bones'…
Cabernet Sauvignon 86%; Merlot 14%
Purple with crimson edges – looks serious in the glass. Tobacco leaf – feint cassis – purple plums – a complex nose which adds weight to the 'serious' theme. Quality Margaret River Cabernet leads the charge here. Just ripe cabernet gives this sinew and poise. Merlot is subservient – almost hard to detect. Terrific wine, at a very affordable price.

6 Bottles x Lone Quince Sauvignon Blanc Semillon -
'A wine with everything in its right place'…
Sauvignon Blanc 72%; Semillon 28%
No surprises with the colour – Pale yellow with green edges. Hallmark citrus and grass / nettle-driven aromatics – there's a tease of white stone fruits – but unmistakably the classic Margaret River Blend. The palate shows balance – concentration of ripe fruit – and more than a little texture. I won't wax lyrical – as it doesn't command that style of critique. Everything in its right place – it's a lovely glass of wine.
