Description

Pale straw with lime hues. Incredibly fragrant aromas of jasmine, frangipani and white rose are delicately balanced with notes of lime juice and lime leaf. Citrus blossom, zesty lime and ripe citrus flavours interlace with crisp acidity and a fine mineral edge that provides focus and purity on the long, clean finish.

A wealth of fresh-apple and lime aromas lead to a fresh and vibrant palate that offers a crisp, dry and chalky finish.

Vintage Description

Vintage 2019 shaped up to be a challenging one, with below-average yields, however the quality was very high, with beautiful expressions of varietal character and generally good balance and structure. The hand-picked fruit that arrived at the winery in the cool of the morning was clean, with good concentrated flavours. A dry winter, spring and summer with warmer than average temperatures in January and February lead to the advancement of maturity of all grape varieties in the Eden Valley and an early onset of vintage. The later-ripening varieties, riesling and cabernet were standouts, however most varieties were of a very high standard, including shiraz despite miniscule yields.
