Pale green-gold in colour. Fragrant, floral aromas of citrus blossom, lemon zest and lime leaf with hints of almond blossom and stone-fruit. Vibrant citrus and delicate passionfruit husk and white peach flavours are supported by a beautiful line of minerality and textural acidity for an elegant and lush finish.
Vintage 2019 provided generally good growing conditions for the Adelaide Hills, with three notable events: the coldest September on record, the wettest November since 2005 and a mini heat wave on the cusp of January/February that the Adelaide Hills rode out extremely well due to good canopy cover. A rapid progression in berry maturation was kickstarted by the Harvest Moon falling right on the spring Equinox, with all varieties ripening at the same time. Hand-harvesting was done in three weeks, bookended by the early sparkling and late red varieties. Yields were down by 20-50 due to ‘hen and chicken’ (berries of different sizes) from the cold, wet period during flowering, however quality was exceedingly good in both white and red varieties as a result of better ripening conditions.
