Expert Reviews

'From Gruyere (72%) and Gembrook (28%), hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, matured in French oak (20% new) with minimal stirring, 260 dozen made. Relatively early picking has given the wine a brisk start on life, grapefruit pith and zest lined up with white stone fruits, the oak integrated.'

Crafted from a single parcel of 10 v1 clone fruit. hand picked in mid feb , fruit wholebunch presses lightly settled and then fermented in a mixture of new 36% and older french oak barriques and puncheons. Both indigenous and cultured yeasts were utilised to enhance complexity and intensity with minimal batonage conducted during maturation.

An extremely elegant and subtle wine , The nose displays grapefruit , flint and jasmine with hints of stonefruit and green melon. The palate is initially focused and tight , opening up to a more generous viscosity . An array of citrus, delicate oak spices and a long invigorating acid finish.
