Aroma: A fruit salad of aromas: crisp green apple and tangy pineapple.
Palate: The palate dominated by a citrus backbone and fleshed out with the texture of malolactic fermentation in barrel. A textural wine with weight and length driven by an acid tang that would stand up to a variety of food pairings.
Hand harvested and crushed to encourage skin contact to lend flavour and texture to the palate. Basket pressed with minimal settling time before transferring to old used French oak barriques for primary fermentation followed by malolactic fermentation and 11 months maturation.
Varietals: A white blend of 75% Semillon and 25% Sauvignon blanc.
Region: Yarra Valley (Gruyere)
Vines: 20 year old dry grown vineyard.
Cellaring: Has sufficient generosity and texture to be approachable as a young wine but will reward careful cellaring for 10+ years. Sealed with screwcap to ensure longevity and freshness.
