"This is another outstanding drop of fermented grape juice from Donovan Rall", says Neal Martin of The Wine Advocate and we wholeheartedly agree! What's clever here is the way the oak manages to blend in so effortlessly and become part of the overall harmony, where so often it can sound like a member of the congregation singing out of tune and drown out the melody.  It's worth decanting this white wine for half an hour, because not only will it coax more of the flavours up from its rich depths, but it will also make your friends stare in quiet admiration when they see you decanting a white wine. 

The Wine Advocate: "Rall's 2014 White Blend, made up of Chenin Blanc, Viognier and Verdelho, has a very closed nose that needed considerable aeration before it deigned itself with its presence. Subtle resinous notes, yellow flowers and a hint of dried honey eventually emerges. The palate is fresh and crisp with a light viscous texture, with the acidity perfectly judged and underpinning a subtle passion fruit-tinged finish, which is utterly irresistible and so nuanced. This is another outstanding drop of fermented grape juice from Donovan Rall." 94 points
