Very pale straw.
At once, inimitably Adelaide Hills aromatics… White stone fruits, notably peach & nectarine.
A suggestion of fig and spice – no doubt the clove aromatics arising from maturation in small French oak barriques.
This oak mirrors sweet and cedary characters with nuances of almond.
Stone fruits persist amid a pistachio nougat-like creaminess, more than likely derived from extended time on yeast lees.
Up-front oak tannins and long, lingering acidity combine to create an enticing phenolic ‘grip’, enhancing the overall structure of the palate.
Delightfully approachable. Why wait?

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.
