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 - Expect good things with time in the bottle – the acid and phenolic structure are conducive to ageing. This wine will reward cellaring for at least 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.
