Floral notes on the nose, along with lime and citrus. This wine has lovely sweet fruit on the front palate, leaning more towards a stone fruit character- namely white peach. Great concentration and a fine textured finish.

Wine Profile

Vintage
Other Notes
Moderate temperatures throughout a wet spring and into flowering resulted in healthy canopies with slightly lower than average yields. Above average rainfall over the Summer due to La Niña was moderated by dry spells and moderate temperatures resulted in slower ripening. High levels of acidity were retained along with great concentration of flavour, fine detail and precision.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes
Floral, white flower and lime citrus notes lift from the glass, an enticing entree to lovely sweet citrus fruit on the front palate and a burst of white peach and nectarine. This wine has great concentration and a fine long mineral and textured finish.
