Background

The Vineyard Series matches particular varieties with specific sites to give you outstanding examples of single vineyard wines.

Tasting Notes

Light straw in colour. Aromas of freshly picked pear and red apple, grapefruit citrus, lime leaf and rose floral. There is a complexity here too from the solids fermentation with flecks of gun flint and a note of freshly cured dough just hovering in the background. The plate is fresh and lively with juicy pear and pink grapefruit flavors. Textural yeasty notes are all framed by a crisp line of acid that flows through the palate.

Vineyard Notes

This wine was sourced from the north-facing Hazeldene Vineyard, sited in the red volcanic soils of Gladysdale.

Winemaker's Notes

Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed with full solids to old French oak puncheons for natural fermentation and subsequent maturation on lees for 3 months prior to bottling.

Vintage Notes

A long, cool growing season with averaging cropping levels and abundant rainfall has resulted in wines of outstanding varietal flavour.

Wine Reviewer

“The nose gives brown pear, autumnal leaves and a touch of bergamot. This is a wine of texture, with a tautness of pear that is laced with citrus acidity; time in barrel has given some dimension with a savoury, yet creamy interlude on the mid palate before driving, just ripe red apple takes over. Good length and mouth feel. A unique and classy wine.” – Patrick Eckel
