Taste Description

Colour
Very pale straw.

Nose
Very much on the fresher fruit spectrum with freshly sliced pear/pink grapefruit and nuances of kaffir lime leaf.
Yeast lees battonage has created a lovely creaminess to the nose with a nutty (fresh slithered almond) and praline note.

Palate
Instantly a saline minerality amid lime zest, lemongrass and a hint of citrus.
There is a wonderful textural element to the palate akin to fresh, chewy meringue and French pastry (Choux) wrapped around a soft chalk-like acid structure.
A wonderful wine with nothing hard or sharp about the palate, just showing a lovely structure with superb balance.

Vintage Conditions

The Adelaide Hills 2016 growing season commenced under mild and dry conditions. Rainfall was below average throughout winter and dry conditions persisted through spring resulting in early vine growth. Conditions for fruit-set and flowering were favourable and contributed towards above average vintage yields.

Rain events during late summer were, for the most part, pre-veraison. Cool February conditions meant that ripening was steady and the slightly early start to vintage was a result of a mild and dry growing season.  February and March weather allowed for a steady harvest, favourable flavour development and acid retention.

History

First vintage: 2007
