The 2017 Triolet speaks so clearly of Dr John Middleton’s ideals and vision for this blend. It is a tighter, more restrained example than 2016, while displaying so much underlying power and concentration. The nose shows a vast array of fruit including lemon/lime, honeydew and just-ripe pear. These fruit characteristics are combined with secondary flavours of oyster shell, seashore and brine elements which all add complexity. The palate is medium bodied and displays a beautiful natural acid profile that is matched with an appealing, juicy fruit expression of lychee, melon and red apple. There are phenolics present, as is always the case with our white wines at Mount Mary, but they are so fine grained and well integrated.

Mount Mary


James Halliday 96 Points!

"Hand-picked, barrel-fermented with a range of different cultured yeasts, 11 months in oak (5% new), some large format. The spine of acidity is a feature certain to hold the wine safe in bottle for 10+ years."

"There are certain years when Triolet really sings, and it’s probably the cooler ones, though I may be wrong. Anyway, they age beautifully, of that much I’m certain. A top-shelf Triolet. So discreet and stylish, yet flavoursome too. Lemon and lime, white pear, fennel and aromatic herbs, floral perfume too, some spiced vanilla biscuit. A subtle gloss to it, but all about line, length and flinty texture, there may be a little guava and apple, but citrus is the main player. Subtle grassy flavour, but nothing overt; it’s a seasoning component here. Brine and crunch to the aftertaste. Impeccable."

"This has a very rich and complex fruit spectrum in 2017; everything is ripe and offering plenty of primary fruit with lemons, peaches and melon in abundance. The palate has a super plush, sleek and gently fleshy feel with a wealth of yellow-citrus and white-peach flavor. Great spine of acidity too."
