Tasting Notes

Bright, pale straw. This is gently aromatic and akin to smelling a fresh green salad laced with herbs or a walk in a wet spring garden. Top notes of lettuce cup, thai basil, flint and river stones sit over orchid fruit aromas of white nectarine, orange blossom and rocket. The palate is glassy and round in texture. Flavour runs deep but with a savoury, yeasty twist. The mineral, flint and river stone characteristics frame the orchard fruit. The finish is long, saline, drenched in lemony citrus and herb tinged. The overall impression is of a composed, balanced and vibrant fresh white that has the inherent structure to age gracefully.

Vineyard Notes

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

Winemaker's Notes

A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine - handpicking and whole bunch pressing directly to 500 litre French oak puncheons for a natural fermentation and a 10 month maturation on lees.

Vintage Notes

A long, late and cool growing season with very low crops delivering wines with exceptional flavour, freshness and balance.
