Bright straw with green hues and aromas of white nectarine, pears and spice. Flavours of stonefruit persist on the palate with citrus. Barrel fermentation builds richness, texture and complexing flavours. Finish is long with natural acidity
Awards and Accolades
95 Points, Special Value Wine - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "From four blocks in the Forest Hill and Highfields Vineyards, crushed, cooled, pressed direct to French barriques (30% new) for wild fermentation and subsequent maturation with partial mlf. Has very good mouthfeel and length, primarily zesty pink grapefruit flavours with some cashew notes."
2015 Vintage: 95 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Machine-harvested at night, pressed straight to French oak (30% new) for cool fermentation, partial mlf and 8 months maturation. A complex bouquet, with smoky/funky nuances ex solids fermentation, leads into a palate with great length, drive and precision. This has classic restraint, very different to Margaret River."
From the Winery
Harvested in the cool hours of the morning and chilled further before some parcels are whole-bunch pressed and others crushed before pressing straight into French oak barriques (30% New oak). Fermentation takes place at cool temperatures with mostly natural yeast. Batonage begins post primary fermentation with partial malo-lactic fermentation. After 8 months barrel maturation to achieve balance, the wine is bottled.
