McLaren Vale, SA, $24
OT's small batch range includes this and a fiano, both keen early players in this territory. Wild ferment and some lees (yeast solids) influence have given this a true midway path between crisp and crunchy and more intense styles. The result is most pleasing, a lovely tension of richmeets bite with a mix of white nut over white pear and nectarine fruits.

Aromas of lemongrass, ginger beer, lime and sea spray
Lifted freshness through the palate with lovely powdery tannin and mouth-watering natural acidity. Lemon grass and kaffir lime, with plenty of texture.
