Growing Season

Small bunches and intensely flavoured fruit with bright aromatics was a characteristic of the 2019 vintage, resulting in beautifully ripe and healthy fruit that we hand picked in mid January. Fruit quality was exceptionally high especially in Chardonnay and Semillon.

Vineyard

This vineyard has dealt with dry conditions very well, over the past three consecutive drought years, producing a lovely canopy that has provided shading for the fruit and protection from any sunburn. The fruit has a distinct lime flavour and high natural acidity, the reason for this block being selected for our prestigious White Label.

Winemaking

The wine is wild fermented, on full solids in 80% new French Oak and 20% one 1yr old oak puncheons. We lees stir this wine once a week for 9 months to build mid pallet richness, the wine undergoes no MLF to retain acidity and balance texture.

Tasting Notes

This wine has a lovely balance of savoury aromas and cordite from the indigenous yeasts and time on solids. The palate is rich with white stone fruits and a lime acid backbone. The oak is integrated and provides a bacon fat complexity to the palate.
