Gobsmacked 2017 Cyclops Love by JPC ,

Never before have we tasted a wine like this. At once, it’s fat and rich but also blessed with laser-like acidity. You don’t see a wine with this much lusciousness that is also refreshing to drink. Lots of fruit flavours and underpinned by a beguiling sense of minerality. Like the label, this wine is as unique as anything you will ever find.
Cyclops this year is a masterful mixture of Muscat, Pinot Aux and a dollop of the G.

The fascinating label was drawn by Jason’s 9 year old daughter.

‘This idiosyncratic wine blends muscat, muller thurgau and a sprinkle of gewürztraminer in 2017, the three aromatic grapes caught taut with a limey acidity that squeezes in the waist of what could otherwise be a flabby, sweet, boring wine. Instead this surprises with its nervy acidity ruling, and the scented melon, perfumed florals, yellow apple and soft spices playing a background role. This tidy medium bodied, oily white would be a killer wine with Thai or Vietnamese dishes. The front label, drawn by Jason Parkes’ nine year old daughter, is as beguiling as the back, a personal story about the winemaker’s journey into wine. Cyclops Love is the first release of this project. 89 points
