Aroma & Bouquet: Pear and quince with hints of cashew nuts.

Palate: Powerful fruit flavours and generosity are hallmarks of this blend. Weight and texture from the varietal mix but also maturation in oak barrels. Pear fruits, soft pillowy texture and custard apple weight.

Hand harvested and whole bunch pressed for finest juice, no clarification before fermentation in mostly one, two and three year old oak barrels lending weight and texture. Blended and bottled after 10 months.

Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.

Varietals: Young vine Marsanne 60%, Viognier 25%, Roussanne 15%.

Vines: A new blend for Yarra Yering, the white counterpart to the Dry Red Wine No.2 where we celebrate classic Rhone varietals.

Cellaring:Has sufficient generosity & texture to be enjoyed as a young wine, bottle maturation after 3-4 years will bring enhanced nutty characteristics.

Vintage 2017: A late start to harvest due to good rainfall and a cool to mild summer without any heat spikes to advance ripeness. Picking lasted 10 weeks at a leisurely pace delivering grapes with beautiful flavour development coupled and good acid retention.

Analysis: ALC: 13.5%
