Details

"Typically it shows a pink grapefuit character, concentration and mid-palate texture, which reflect the carefully selected sites and hand harvesting during the small window of perfect ripeness. the 2019 has intensity of flavour and is particularly bright, fresh and balanced."

 James Halliday 95 Points!


 

"Light straw-quartz hue. Not the easiest of vintages, but you'd never know it given the intensity, the resonance and length of this vibrant, juicy wine. The 30th vintage, and I buy the back label comment 'the wine is better now than at any time in our 30 years'."


- James Halliday, Wine Companion 2020

 


 

 

"Fine, persistent nose with wild flowers and slight grassiness. there's a touch of sweetness on entry, although the wine is effectively dry. The palate is soft and round, with beautiful freshness. Well balanced, with floral, grassy characters, citrus and a little rose. Elevated acidiy, with flesh balance and harmony. Easy to drink."
