Andy & Emma Cummins are challengers in the Barossa alongside the likes of Shobbrook & Sami- Odi. Their wines, in my opinion, are some of the most integral expressions of the region of the last decade. Taking a precise look at what the Barossa means today, more than what we expect from the Barossa, they focus mainly on blends to showcase truly regional styles over Varietal. The amount of life and finesse in their wines are testament to the diversity that we can see from our most famous wine region.
The Dry White is a blend of Riesling, Semillon & Muscat a Petit Grain. Having some time on skins, it brings out the Barossa's calling card ripeness and energy, coupled with the acid structure brought through by the Riesling you end up with this broad savoury yet bright wine that balances everything with the elegance of a plate spinner. The feel of it is seducingly waxy, it greets you with a savoury, earthern entrance and leaves you with just the most tickling residual sugar captured from the Muscat a Petit Grain, just insane.
