Colour At release, the wine is a very pale straw colour with a slight green tinge to the edge.
Nose The wine displays zesty lemon and lime aromas along with faint orange blossom aromas.
Palate The wine is quite restrained at release with a linear focus to the palate and purity of fruit flavours. Plenty of fresh lemon/lime juice characters abound with crisp and refreshing lime acidity down the mid-palate. All this is complimented by a persistent and refreshing finish.
Vintage Conditions In the lead up to vintage 2022 we experienced relatively mild and unusually wet conditions throughout January which delayed veraison to around 2 weeks later than average. Into February, mild conditions prevailed for most of the month and then it warmed up over the last few days. The mild weather conditions continued into March with comfortably warm days and mild, cool nights along with minimal rainfall which resulted in near perfect ripening conditions with little to no disease pressure. Overall, our winemakers are reporting excellent quality from the vintage.
