Description

This wine has been fermented in 100% French Oak Hogshead barrels and matured on yeast lees with occasional stirring. The resultant wine displays lovely complexity of both fruit and oak with elegant peach flavours being complimented by a soft and creamy finish with a bouquet of subtle melon and peach fruit aromas with a hint of toasty oak.

Drinking well now or will develop very rewarding toasty, nutty characters with careful medium term cellaring, 2-5 years.

Excellent with rich white meat dishes and many styles of pasta.

Ned Goodwin, Master of Wine (Reviewed May 2019)

Sourced from a creek flat block, the rows north to south oriented, maximising sun exposure with the proclivity for ripeness accentuated further by abstemious yields. The effect is one of toasted hazelnut, melon and crème brûlée. This mid to fuller weighted expression manages to bridle a fulsome richness with a certain je ne said quoi tension. Like all good wines, this juxtaposition of textures and edge, makes for complexity 93 Points
