Description

Pale yellow with flecks of green in the glass. The nose is perfumed; white flowers, jasmine, stonefruit, candied melon and citrus rind aromas are abundant, and layers of subtle grilled nut and biscuit notes give depth and interest. The palate is textured, crisp and flavoursome.

2017 was a cool growing season in the Yarra Valley – good Spring rains and mild temperatures made for modest yields, a comfortable season and outstanding fruit quality.

This wine is comprised of a variety of fruit parcels and a number of different clones, sourced predominantly from Upper Ngumby vineyards located on the foothills of the Christmas Hills range, and Rising Vineyard located in a high valley in the Christmas Hills. A mix of hand and machine harvested fruit was used, all of which was loaded directly into the press. The juice was coarse settled and racked to a combination of tanks, and 300L and 500L French oak barrels for ferment. Both selected yeast and wild yeast ferments were conducted, with a quarter of the wine going through the secondary malolactic fermentation. The solids included in fermentation contributed complexity and savoury notes on the palate. All wine was matured on lees with some limited stirring. The blend was assembled and prepared for bottling after approximately 9 months maturation.
