Tasting notes
COLOUR: Rich straw gold AROMA: Intense and complex, this wine displays aromas of nectarine, peach skin, mandarin peel and blood orange integrated with vanilla pod and macadamia nut aromas from the French oak influence. PALATE: Ripe stone fruit flavours of nectarine, peach and dried apricot, integrate with a flinty minerality and subtle French oak influence giving hints of roasted hazelnut. A tight, well structured palate with underlying minerality gives the wine seamless length and complexity.

Wine maker notes
WINEMAKERS NOTES: The fruit for this wine was hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, allowing clean and intensely flavoured juice to be crushed from the grape. The juice was fermented in French oak barriques, with a combination of indigenous and cultured yeast. The use of indigenous yeast resulted in a long slow fermentation, followed by extended barrel aging on yeast lees. This maturation allowed the oak flavours to gently integrate with the fruit and yeast lees characters and develop increased richness and complexity in the wine.
