Colour At release, the wine is a youthful pale straw colour with vibrant green hue to the edges.
Nose 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.
Palate This is a medium-bodied yet sumptuous wine with an enjoyable creaminess to the mid-palate. Flavours of juicy white fleshed stone fruit are evident along with cleansing citrus at the finish which has wonderful persistence and length from the use of quality French oak.
Vintage Conditions The growing season leading up to vintage 2019 saw lower than average winter and spring rainfall. This, along with some hail and frost events, affected yields overall. There were some extreme weather conditions during the growing season, including the lowest temperature recorded in spring and the highest ever temperature in summer, but overall, the vines showed great resilience. The resulting wine quality is good with intense flavours and colours.
Oak Maturation The wine is first fermented and then matured for a total of 12 months in high quality French (Burgundian) oak (100% new) prior to bottling.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
