Bright mid-gold; the bouquet reveals fresh cut nectarine, with wood spice aromas; the palate is fresh and lively, with tangy acidity and quartz mineral lingering on the moderately long finish. Rating 90 - Drink by 2016 - Ben Edwards, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2013)
Winery Tasting Notes
Early disease pressure followed by cold and wet conditions during ripening meant fastidious vineyard management was pivotal in a successful 2011 vintage. With the Paringa vineyards in good health patience was then required as fruit maturity was reached up to four weeks later than average.
The bouquet is lifted with peach, grapefruit and funky wild yeast complexity.
The palate is textured, full fresh and long.
