Tasting notes

Tasting note: Clear and brilliant with hints of green. Bouquet: An abundance of tropical fruit and green apple aromas. Complex and full-bodied with a creamy texture and an explosion of green apple on the palate.

Food suggestion: Rich cheeses, full-flavoured and creamy and saucy food. Particularly compliments chicken, duck, sushi and line fish.

Wine specs

In The Vineyard

The grapes were sourced from trellised vineyards in the Darling region. The dryland, unirrigated vineyards grow on northern-facing slopes in deep rich soils and produced a yield of around 8 tons per hectare.

Wine specs

The Harvest

The grapes were harvested by hand at 24° Balling at the end of February.

Wine specs

In The Cellar

The fruit received no skin contact in the cellar and was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 13° to 15°C. After fermentation the wine was left on the fine lees for three months to enhance texture and flavour. This wine received no wood treatment.
