Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Aroma

The wine opens with subtle oak leading to stone fruit (nectarine) & citrus fruit and hints of barrel fermentation characters on the nose.

Palate

The palate has rich citrus flavours supported by background oak and some minerally texture. And whilst quite restrained, the palate has excellent length and balance.

Cellaring Potential

2015-2019+

This wine will age gracefully and gain further complexity.
