Passel Estate Wines
Bright green in colour with pale yellow hints. An aromatic bouquet of white flowers, lemon zest and freshly cut pear. A crisp entry on the palate, revealing limes, white stone fruit and sugar snap peas. The freshness continues through the palate, boasting a sheer mineral and crunchy natural acidity bolstered by white fruits and subtle French oak tones of brioche and toasted nuts on the finish. Drink now for freshness or cellar to allow the more complex savoury and textural oak characters to develop.
Pale straw in colour with a fresh green hue. An aromatic bouquet of freshly cut nectarines, zested orange, citrus blossom and cashews. The palate leads with focused white pear and bees wax flavours, with hints of vibrant grapefruit, strung together by a tensile acid core. The focus and elegance continues through the palate, with notes of white peach and crème brûlée lending a sumptuous edge to the sheer and long finish. Drink now for freshness or cellar for several years to see more complex savoury and textural characters evolve.
Deep purple in colour with aromas of satsuma plums, blackberries, aniseed, and lovely complex savoury notes (reminiscent of braised meats). The palate leads with dense, dark fruit flavours and coating tannins. It continues with hints of vanilla pod, cracked black peppercorns and freshly tilled earth; finishing with impressive length, deep earthy tannins and spiced wild fruits. Drink now for freshness or be rewarded with cellaring over the next 5-7 years.
Crimson coloured with flecks of amethyst. An aromatic bouquet of currants, violets and blueberries with hints of bay and dark chocolate. The palate leads with vibrant mulberries, cedar and cherry skin, accompanied by firm spicy structural tannins. The finish lingers and boasts of violets, chocolate and slate-like minerality. Drink now or be rewarded with cellaring over the next 8-10 years.
Brooding aromas of graphite, blueberries, anise and red currant are flecked with hints of bay leaf, boysenberry and dried herbs. An effortless entry and primal blue and black fruit flavours introduce a coating palate of cocoa-nib, gravel and liquorice, guided by a tensile core of super-fine-grained tannin and poised fruit textures. A tactile ascent to the finish leaves the palate firm, engaged and vital, drenched in fruit and saturated in bristling cherry skin texture. This wine will continue to mature gracefully and can be cellared for 10+ years.
