Aroma - Roast nuts, fig and white peach
Palate - Crisp and bright, with a delicate clean finish. Peach, melon and orange skin flavours along with the creamy mouthfeel and nutty notes from barrel ageing
Cellaring - Always a great candidate for cellaring, expect this wine to be at its best 3-7 years after harvest, and confidently expect a rewarding drink until at least 2027

Winemaking Notes

Harvested over 6 separate hand picks, fruit was pressed as whole bunches with the free run juice briefly settled before draining to French oak barrels. The majority of barrels were left to undergo long slow spontaneous fermentation, with the separate batches being assembled 11 months after harvest. After blending the wine was left to rest in tank for 10 months before preparation for bottling.
