Cool pale gold in the glass, a drop of this is certainly an attractive proposition. Sourced from the Barossa and Eden valleys.
Lush aromas of peach and honeydew melon are backed up by rich peach and nectarine on the palate. A touch of citrus acidity makes for a mouthwatering match up with fresh seafood! This will drink well right now but will age well for a few more years.
From the Winery
The grapes received were crushed and pressed immediately after the fruit was harvested in the night before it was settled to clarify the juice. The juice cold fermented in stainless steel for 14 days at 12-15C, with selected yeast. It was then fermented in French oak and then left on lees and stirred to add further complexity to the style.
The fruit is sourced from the Schrapel family vineyards in the Barossa Valley on the slopes of the Barossa Ranges, and neighbouring vineyards in Eden Valley.
Eden Valley is a cool climate region nestled between 400 and 600 meters above sea level and is part of the Barossa and Mount Lofty Ranges. It is rough, rocky country that belies its ability to produce wines of great delicacy and finesse. The soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock with red clay soils and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels.
The cooler climate of the Eden Valley allows fruit to experience longer ripening periods which is perfect for flavour accumulation and intensity. The Barossa Valley fruit offers subtle weight and a complexity of flavours to the palate structure.
