Tasting notes

A testament to the right fruit planted in the right terroir, this wine is sourced from three unique Estate vineyards that see temperature swings that yield ripe fruit with bright acidity. The wine opens with aromas of Asian spice leading into pear and ginger. Yellow peach flavours dance on the palate with lemon and lime, resulting in a wine with enticing harmony. In a word – crisp.

Viticultural notes

The 2017 harvest was one of extremes. The harvest started later than anticipated, with a cool, wet spring. However, a record-breaking dry spell followed in July and August, with temperatures well above seasonal norms. This warm, dry summer resulted in a crop of small, concentrated berries that should produce wines of exceptional depth and intensity. The harvest concluded on October 30, yielding a crop reminiscent of the incredible 2009 vintage.
