Fruit is sourced from two splendid vineyards in Kalimna and Rowland Flat. All grapes are hand picked into separate parcels and individually processed, bunches are whole bunch pressed to open vats for a term of cold soak and gross lees settling. After a day of rest, the younger blocks are racked to fermenters, whilst the older more robust parcels are filled to a selection of well seasoned French oak barriques for a long cool vinification. Components are assembled into the finished wine in the November following harvest.
Pristine lemon hues. Delicate notes of cumquats and calamansi, limestone, candle wax and toasted brioche. Medium bodied, youthful palate, suppored by underlying notes of minerals and citrus oil, an exquisite freshness of fruit, preserved by a crisp spine of razor acidity which neatly laces into the finish.
