More Information
Region Clare Valley 59% + Margaret River 41%
Colour On release the wine is a very pale straw colour with a youthful green hue.
Nose It has intense lifted aromas of melon and lime with hints of stone fruits. There are underlying tropical notes of green pineapple and guava and subtle secondary characters of flint, cedar and spice.
Palate The palate displays citrus fruits, fig and melon flavours along with a clean, mineral acidity and a touch of lemon zest. Texturally, it is very delicate, with a soft mid palate and well integrated oak.
Vintage Conditions In the Clare Valley, the season leading up to vintage 2020 was challenging with spring frosts at budburst and hot and windy conditions during flowering. Then, outside of the Clare Valley, devastating bushfires impacted many over the summer. Into March, the weather was mild and remained ideal for ripening and harvest. In Margaret River, the region enjoyed an early start to the season, with warmer than average spring temperatures evolving into the perfect summer growing conditions. The only downside being the lower than normal yields although these have resulted in exceptional fruit that shows divine concentration of aromas and flavours.
Oak Maturation All of the free-run juice was fermented in quality French oak barrels (60% new and the remainder in a combination of 2 and 3 year old). After fermentation the wine was matured for a further 8 months in French oak before both regional parcels were blended and prepared for bottling.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
