An array of lifted peach, nectarine stone fruits, lemon/lime citrus, and
cinnamon/clove spice with hint of nutmeg and Nougat. A slight wild
ferment funk gives an element of depth and richness to the nose.


Rich vibrant palate with a soft, seductive creamy texture, and exquisite
white stone fruit flavours fill the mouth. Well integrated, supple oak
and persistent, tight yet seamless acid lines linger on resulting in a
crisp, clean, captivating finish.

Growing Conditions

The 2015/16 growing season was characterised by moderate rainfall in
winter with mild/warm conditions followed by a dry and warm spring.
Vine growth was rapid throughout the season and most phenological
markers were reached ahead of expectations due to warm temperatures
and a dry soil profile. Summer was typically warm/hot with
consistently cool night-time temperatures and a major rainfall event
mid-January around veraison.


With a combination of tender machine and hand-harvesting the fruit
was chilled, gently pressed, cold settled and transferred to French oak
barriques. Fermentation was initiated by a combination of natural
yeasts from the vineyard and specially selected yeast strains. Each
batch was left on lees for 8 months during maturation with regular
battonage before blending, filtering then bottling.
