Vintage

The 2016 vintage was dry and naturally low yielding in our vineyards due to minimal irrigation. The cool nights in our Landsborough Vineyard allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and achieve maturity while retaining freshness.

Soil

Well drained soil comprised of loose quartz with shale and siltstone.

Harvest

Grapes were hand-harvested at night in early March.

Vinification

Whole bunch pressing, followed by a cold sedimentation for 36 hours. Wild yeast fermentation in Stainless Steel Tanks.

Maturing

The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks on lees for a few weeks.

Tasting

Colour: pale gold colour with hints of green.

Nose: a combination of pear, ripe lemon and jasmine.

Palate: rich and intense palate, very expressive with a young fruity start followed by a long and mineral finish.
