Description

Winemakers
Notes

Crops were down and summer was incredibly dry, which led to an early harvest. The fruit quality this year was outstanding. Grapes were hand harvested from The Spring Vineyard and from our high density planted Brookby Hill Vineyard. They were then lightly whole bunch pressed and the juice naturally fermented. The wine aged for 11 months in 4,500L French oak cuves. Full malolactic fermentation occurred.

Tasting Notes

Bright lemon in colour, the bouquet offers aromas of toasted almonds and Meyer lemon mingled with struck match. On the palate the wine is bright and focused, opening up to layers of stone fruit and lemon curd, over hazelnuts and just a touch of toasted oak.
