Frank Cornelissen Munjebel Bianco 6va

I'm coming to the conclusion that Frank Cornelissen's wines are built to drink now but with the ability to change with time in the bottle.  Due to the manner in which he bottles them I would be more inclined to open them now. Furthermore as they are a blend of vintages why would I want to cellar them anyway?

Frank Cornelissen Munjebel Bianco 6va

This wine tastes very different from the 7 version with flavours of black pepper corns and guava mixed with orange rind and hay.  There are still elements of chocolate covered caramel  laced with lemon preserve like you get from number 7 but this wine is a little more open an accessible when compared to its version from the later year.  This wine is more about texture and length than it is flavour and once it enters your mouth the liquid spreads out on your tongue like syrup.  There is a grainy components to the texture which you don't often find in many wines.  Do I like it? Well, yes I like it a lot.
