The nose has a floral citrus blossom lift with fruit characters of lemon, lime, pear and candied pineapple, complemented by barrel-aged characters of orange/lime marmalade, honey, almond and nougat.


The palate is succulent and mouth watering, featuring flavours of glazed pear and citrus, creamed honey, nougat and nuances of marmalade-like bitterness, finishing with a refreshing crisp clean mouth feel

Growing Conditions

Good winter rainfall had prepared the vineyard for the season & a dry, warm spring looked like vintage would be early. However, December cooled down & a rain event in January, combined with cooler than usual night-time temperatures, slowed things down.
