Vintage: 2023 – an excellent white wine vintage, typified by good yields and a dry, mild ripening period resulting in flavoursome, aromatic wines.
Varietals (%’S): 67% Shiraz; 14% Semillon; 9% Cabernet Sauvignon; 6% Chardonnay; 4% Pinot Noir
Appearance: Pale coral pink.
Aroma: Lifted aromatics of blueberry, redcurrant, rose water and nougat.
Palate: Vibrant fruits of redcurrant, cherry & rosehip on the front palate lead into some more textural notes of lemon curd, Turkish delight and aniseed spice, before a soft and delicate acid line ensures a long, textural, and mouth-watering finish.
Oak Detail: A portion of the blend was whole bunch pressed direct to seasoned French oak barriques for natural fermentation and subsequent 4 month’s maturation on ferment lees to build palate weight and texture. The balance of the blend was fermented cool in stainless steel to retain freshness and aromatics.
Cellaring: Ready for immediate drinking and will continue to drink well over the next 2 years.
