Aroma & Bouquet: Pear and quince with hints of bees wax.

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. Some grape tannin present for structure and length.

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 56%, Roussanne 29%, Viognier 15%.

Vines: A new blend for Yarra Yering, the white counterpart to the Dry Red Wine No2 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 2018: A cool and wet spring and summer delayed budburst and encouraged good canopy growth and good fruit set before summer arrived and thereafter the season turned dry.  Picking over a busy 6 weeks delivering grapes with generous flavour development.

Analysis: ALC: 13.5%
