"Rich and buttery on the tropical fruit nose with nutty notes adding complexity.  Palate quite tight with solid texture and good savoury length."
- Winestate Magazine, July 2022

93 points Sam Kim
"Delightfully fruited and inviting, showing yellow peach, brioche, citrus peel and roasted hazelnut characters, leading to a beautifully weighted palate displaying creamy mouthfeel backed by juicy acidity. Attractively styled and delectably appealing. At its best: now to 2028."
- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

COLOUR

Clear bright straw.

NOSE

Clean developing aromas of poached pear, mandarin and subtle flinty butterscotch.

PALATE

Clean full-bodied interweaving flavours of poached pear, melon and kaffir lime integrated in a textural vanilla barrel toast dimension and finishing with a good length of tangy dried orange peel.

WINEMAKING

The grapes were harvested cool in the morning then pressed into tank and oak.  The tank fermented portion (40%) was cool fermented and employed burgundy yeast. Yeast lees where periodically stirred back into the wine for 11 months thereafter to impart greater dimension and textural properties. The barrel fermented portion (60%) was fermented with a more fruit driven Portuguese yeast strain followed by complete malo-lactic fermentation with a high diecetyl (Buttery) strain of malo-lactic bacteria to enhance both layering on the palate and overall complexity.

FOOD PAIRING

Coq au Vin Blanc with a hint of fresh Tarragon.

VINTAGE NOTES

Cool conditions in early spring enabled a subsequent long growing season. A warm dry summer subsided into ideal cooler autumn conditions prior to harvest.
