Wine Front 94 Points!


"The vines for this wine were just opposite where I wrote this tasting note, incredibly lush in vegetation and waist deep in broad beans. The vines amble gently up a hill and are framed by thatches of gum trees. Such a beautiful site and sight. The wine sees a bit of new oak.


Lemon balm, balsa wood, faint marzipan, concentrated citrus notes – a beautiful perfume. Slips across the palate with a light oiliness then puckers up nicely and tartly to close. Concentrated, layered, oak spice through nectarine, lightly savoury but deliciously fresh too. Wonderful expression, plenty going on, superb drinking."


Mike Bennie, Wine Front, November 2018


 

Bouquet: Delightful combination of fresh cut grass, spicy and vanilla oak aromas supported by tropical notes.


Palate: Vibrant fruit lifted by citrus nuances. Very complex already with lovely stone fruit nuances and toasty characteristics. Barrel fermentation is seamless and playing second role. A brilliant example of this classic blend.


Cellar: Enjoy now or for up to 15 years.

Oak: 60% of the wine for 9 months in French oak which 70% is new.

Alcohol: 13%
