COLOUR  Pale straw.

NOSE   Citrus blossom, lemon tart and passionfruit.

PALATE   Vibrant, yet delicate palate with flavours of mandarin, cumquat and honeydew lemon. Fine, zesty acid, good length and a crisp finish.

WINEMAKING   Machine harvested in the cool of night, straight to press. Juice was immediately separated from the skins and pressings. The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon underwent fermentation separately then blended prior to bottling to create a wine that has interest and structure whilst maintaining harmony. 

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 have 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, this also resulted in ample marri blossom around the district which eased the bird pressure experienced in 2019. Yields were low across the board, but on the upside this resulted in excellent quality with concentration of flavour across all varieties.
