TASTING NOTES

A very perfumed wine with aromas of lime, candied lemon peel, orange water, orange blossom, slate, powdered ginger and five spice.

SEASON

By March, ‘unprecedented’ was already the catchword for 2020, a term that could equally describe the season and vintage. The COVID situation escalated over the closing weeks of the season, posing unique challenges for harvest and vintage operations, which we managed with a few elegant pivots. Unlike many other regions in eastern Australia, the season was quite cool and we had some rain, so that fruit retained great natural acid and the harvest was naturally low yields of clean fruit with excellent flavour.

WINEMAKING

Whole bunch pressed into a large concrete egg and naturally fermented for around three weeks. Critical to retaining provenance was preserving the acid line and a complementing it with a touch of sweetness.
