A crisp styled chard, with hits of peach and melon, finishes off with a lengthy palate of oak.
Fresh early January rains prepared vines for what was to be a mild and then dry Riverina vintage. The cooler temps allowed for great depth in pungent fruit aromas and allowed the retention of natural acid in most varieties. Quality is well above average.
Winemaking Fruit classification was based on those vineyards showing flavour expression characteristic of Sacred Hill quality. Healthy balanced vineyards profiling fresh stone fruits and a natural acidity were chosen for this wine style. This wine was fermented cool over a two week period. Selected parcels were fermented with the inclusion of French oak staves. Once fermentation was complete exceptional wines were matured on fine yeast lees over four months to build palate weight.
