A NOTE FROM OUR WINEMAKERS
A delicious food wine, it has a complex texture marked by natural grape tannins, fresh acidity and mid-palate creaminess, punctuated by lemon and spice.

THE FINER DETAILS
Hints of spicy citrus characters on the nose are integrated beautifully on the palate with the stone fruit flavours and a creamy texture. The combination of Upper and Lower Yarra fruit gives this wine its near perfect balance of palate weight and length.Download Tasting Notes
Good winter rainfall leading to excellent soil moisture set the scene for a terrific vintage. The wet winter was followed by early heat mid-spring and a long dry summer allowing excellent development of flavour.
This wine blends fruit from two distinct areas: Coldstream, with typical valley floor soils of clay loam over yellow mudstone, and the Upper Yarra where there is rich red volcanic loam. The wine was fermented in French oak barriques for 14 days and aged in the same barrels, 33% new, for 11 months.
