Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietals

54% Semillon, 46% Sauvignon Blanc

Aroma

This wine shows lifted passion fruit and guava but also delicate complexing high notes of lemon blossom and citrus peel.

Palate

The palate exhibits ripe gooseberry and a elegant lemon sherbet acidity inherent in high quality Semillon. A complex yet eminently drinkable blend of two great grape varieties from this region.

Vintage Condition

The 2010 vintage was another benevolent one for the Clare Valley. A wet spring ensured our old dry grown vineyards such as Ackland had very good canopies and excellent vine health.

The Region experienced a very warm November which affected some varieties flowering but generally we enjoyed warm days and mild nights without significant temperature spikes. Our vineyards due to this excellent canopy and vine health revelled in these conditions with even steady ripening and a hassle free harvest period.

This smooth, slightly early harvest has produced fine wines exhibiting intense regional and varietal characteristics. Intense lifted floral and fruit aromas and crystalline purity are the hallmarks
