PALATE

Ripe pear and almond predominate, folding into the delicate palate. A beautifully balanced wine with maximum fruit weight, it’s complex & layered on the crisp dry finish.

VINTAG

2016 was an unusually dry growing season, but daily temperatures were fairly mild. These conditions resulted in the earliest harvest we have ever had. The berries show intense perfume and great flavour which has produced exceptional balanced wines.

WINEMAKING

Whole bunch pressed directly to old French oak barrels for fermentation and matured on lees in barrel with occasional stirring for greater textural complexity.  It was racked, stabilised and prepared for bottling in late June.
