The Violinist is Sarah, who was made to play the violin right handed in school, so that she didn't poke her friend in the eye with her bow.
The grapes were grown on the Gemtree vineyard in McLaren Vale. 2/3 of the Violinist was tank fermented and matured. 1/3 was Barrel fermented in new oak barrels of which 67% were American and 33% were French.
Winemakers Tasting Notes
The 2016 Violinist sets off with a fragrant nose reminiscent of tropical fruits that is supported by a generous mouthfeel. Its lemon and lime zest adds an initial crispness to the palate that slowly fades to leave you with an imprint of its creamy mouthfeel. Ripe pineapple and lychee flavours develop and intertwine with fresh citrus elements. Careful oak use has added to the wines complexity with hints of vanilla and spice to help tantalize the tastebuds.
