Overview

The fruit is sourced from a selection of vineyards situated mainly around the Watervale sub-region of the Clare Valley, including the Ackland Vineyard. Vine ages range from approximately 10 - 30 years old.

The wine was made with a responsive winemaking approach to preserve fruit purity. The fruit was hand picked and gently crushed with only the best free run juice used. It was then cold settled and cool fermented with neutral yeast to dryness. The wine was cold settled prior to filtration and bottling.

Youthful talc-like aromas combine with bright lime juice character and bath salt highlights.

The palate is juicy and lively with the lime juice theme continuing and mixing with a quinine twist. The wine finishes with a dry flinty character and shows tremendous persistence.

Fantastic drinking now and this wine will reward careful cellaring for up to 10 years.
