An unusual fusion of Clare Valley and Adelaide Hills resulting in an intensely flavoured, complex yet elegant wine with distinct citrus, white peach & nectarine characters along with a subtle flinty note.

Adelaide Hills (58%) / Clare Valley (42%)
On release the wine is a very pale straw colour with a youthful green hue.
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.
The palate delivers what the bouquet promises; 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. The Clare Valley parcel delivers mid palate fleshiness whilst the Adelaide Hills component contributes restrained fruit characters and a hint of minerality that is typical of this region. Overall, the wine has a great palate line with length which lingers long after the wine is consumed.
American oak was employed for its ability to deliver robust characters. After maturing in oak for a period of 10 months, the wine was blended, filtered and bottled.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
