Region

Eden Valley, South Australia

Winemaking

The fruit for this wine has been pressed in whole bunches and fermented before undergoing additional aging in French oak for 10 months in order to further enhance the palate and bring out the best qualities of the fruit.

 

Tasting Notes

Colour

A limey straw colour with vibrant gold hues

Aroma

A bright nose showing a core of tightly wound grapefruit and lime, crunchy nectarine, and soft layers of cream, almond flesh and quartzy minerality.

Palate

The palate is pure and focused, somewhat flinty and with a zesty but graceful yellow citrus line. Flavours of peach are also present and there is a slight hint of lychee.
