This intriguing blend is a pale straw / pink blush in colour, wafts of white florals, light gingery spice and subtle citrus immediately hit the nose. The palate is savoury with good acid line and a crisp finish, with flavours of citrus lingering long after.
Sourced from: 30% Gewurztraminer - Boat O’Craigo, Healesville 30% Pinot Gris - Henley Hill 20% Savagnin - Melba Valley, Dixons Creek 20% Sauvignon Blanc - Multi-Vineyards
Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 90 Points, Special Value Wine - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Savagnin, pinot gris, gewurztraminer and chardonnay. It's more floral than a bridal party. It throws lychee, rosewater, honeysuckle and various other blossomy characters at you, and does so in a pleasing manner."
From the Winery
Vintage 2016 will be long remembered as the most compact growing season in living memory. A warm spring was followed by a warmer than average Summer but luckily we were spared from suffering through too many extreme over-40 degree spikes during the ripening period. The effect of this weather forced an acceleration of ripening but also a retention of fresh acidity due to the cool nights. It’s not surprising then to see ripe, generous characters on the 2016 wines”. Mark Nikolich - Senior Winemaker
