"Similar colour to the standard wine; the bouquet is fresh and focused, but the palate takes the wine to another level with its energy and penetrating shaft of minerally acidity carrying the stone fruit and grapefruit along in its wake, and long, lingering finish. 96 points." James Halliday

Adequate rainfall during winter and spring replenished soil moistures and kicked off the growing season really well. Cool to mild conditions during October and November followed by a warmish December were next to ideal. Timely rainfall in December freshened up the vineyards. A burst of heat in January and an extended period of heat in early March accelerated the vintage, though not negatively; in fact, excellent vintage conditions allowed above average yields without impacting quality or Main Ridge characteristics.
