2011 was a classic cool vintage, harvest didn’t start until the cool of March.High natural acidity and gentle fruit flavours gives the wine minerality andstructure. Hand picked, gently pressed and 100% barrel fermented gives this variety a unique make over. Look out for the citrus, straw and tropical characters overlayed with a toasty spicey oak finish. Superb!
- VIC - Yarra Valley
The grapes were selected from two Upper Yarra vineyards, the juice barrel-fermented in a mix of new and used French oak; the oak is prominent on the bouquet, but on the palate it is balanced with the herbal, citrus fruit. Without question a wine designed to be enjoyed with a wide range of food. Rating 91 - Drink by 2015 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/12012)
Winery Tasting Notes
Cinnamon and fruit toast, citrus blossom with tropical highlights.
Huge fruit melded with bold cherry oak. An emerging Yarra Valley style, it epitomizes the punchy fruit core surrounded by an influence of elegant oak. Lovely grapefruit, mineral length.
