Limus 2018 Tidal Red (Mount Gambier)
This young, natural producer (Kyatt Dixon) is new to the Aussie wine scene, but if his first few vintages are anything to go by, he clearly knows what he's doing. There's zero additives here, including sulfur, yet this Pinot-Merlot blend is clean, stable and bursting with personality. Like sinking into a your favorite armchair, aromas of raspberry, red currant, wild strawberry, dried rose and pencil lead draw you in, while a tight rein of spicy tannins keeps you there. Acid hounds rejoice for there's plenty to tingle the tongue, but make no mistake, there's flesh on this wine's bones that could give it a life in the bottle for up to another decade.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
