Description

Aroma: Aromas of fig and ripe peaches overlaid with dried grass, walnuts and almond.

Palate: Nutty, creamy and elegant. The fruit profile is restrained and the structure tightly bound with a fine, crisp finish.

Cellaring: The refined and restrained nature of this wine bodes well for an elegant ageing profile. While the balance is already approachable, harmony of the wines components will continue to evolve over the next 5-10 years.

Winemaking

Handpicked in the cool of morning, the juice was gently pressed direct to barrels and left to ferment. The most promising barrels from two blocks were selected and blended for further ageing. After a final selection 7 barrels were blended prior to bottling in January 2018.

Vineyard

2016 was dry and a little warmer than average. There were small bunches and berries with great concentration. The acid and flavour balance allowed picking at moderate sugar levels early in the harvest.
