COLOUR  Pale straw.

NOSE   Vibrant aromas of passionfruit, citrus blossom & gooseberry.

PALATE   Lively flavours of fresh lime, green pineapple and a hint of lemongrass, carried by a zesty acidity.

WINEMAKING    Harvested in the cold of night, pressed immediately to retain freshness, with the juice separated from the skins straight away. A small portion, approximately 18% of final blend, underwent fermentation in French oak barrels, which was left on lees for 6 months to build texture. The remainder was fermented in stainless steel to retain fruit vibrancy and freshness.

VINTAGE NOTES   2020 was a warm and dry vintage, however a wetter than average winter set us up well for this. The growing season started off with a warm spring followed by a hot summer, we did get one significant rain event late February, which slowed down the reds and allowed for ripening of tannin and flavour to catch up with sugars. The warm and dry conditions reduced disease pressure, and we didn’t have the bird pressure of 2019 due to ample marri blossom around the district. Yields were low across the board, but on the upside this resulted in excellent quality with concentration of flavour across all varieties.
