Silky textured with exceptional length and flavours of peach, nectarine and subtle cashew nuances from quality French oak.
At release, the wine is a youthful pale straw colour with vibrant green hue to the edges.
The wine has ripe white peach aromas along with hints of tropical fruit and subtle creamy oak. Enticing sweet spice and savoury cashew nut from the French oak add complexity to the bouquet.
This is a medium-bodied yet sumptuous wine with an enjoyable creaminess to the mid-palate. Flavours of plump juicy fruit are evident along with cleansing citrus at the finish which has wonderful persistence and length from the use of quality French oak.
The wine has had contact with premium French oak for a short time.
In the growing season leading up to vintage 2017, winter rainfall was above average and the corresponding low soil temperatures resulted in budburst occurring up to a month later than in recent years. Weather conditions during flowering were favourable and fruit set was good across all varieties. Harvest began in late February and picking continued at a slow and steady rate until early May due to the prevailing mild conditions. Overall, or winemakers have declared the vintage to be above average in terms of quantity and fruit quality.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
