DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Brilliant, pale straw with a light olive hue. A restrained nose with classic varietal characters of lime zest and field blossom with underlying wet slate that will evolve with time in bottle.

Wine Making

The fruit was picked in mid February, early in the morning to keep the fruit as cold as possible. Only the lightly pressed juice was captured to produce pristine juice high in acidity and without phenolics. The juice was fermented in stainless steel with a neutral yeast and temperature controlled to preserve aromatics.

Cellaring

Vintage 2016 provided near perfect growing conditions with good winter rains followed by Rutherglens renowned Indian summer. These conditions have produced an elegant wine, with varietal character and crisp acidity which will develop nicely over the coming 8-10 years. Enjoy with freshly shucked oysters, or salt and pepper calamari.

Date Tasted: June 2016
Alcohol: 11.0%

pH: 3.11pH

Palate:

This wine builds flavour in the mouth, with fresh lemon juice and freshly crushed grapes. Firm acidity provides backbone to the wine and adds a slate like texture which finishes with a balanced and soft citrus persistence.
