Tasting Notes: Elegant, textural and completely dry, with a creamy, faintly confectionary scent of raspberries, strawberries and citrus oil. Driving long and full down the palate, its intense, but gentle core of bright small berry/cherry flavour overlies a crunchy, chalky spine before culminating in a vivacious and refreshing finish without any austerity.
Winemaking Notes: Hand-picked March 5th.The fruit was macerated overnight, pressed with solids to tank, and then racked to barrel for natural fermentation.12 months in aged oak before being racked back to tank in preparation for tirage, zero dosage.
Viticultural Notes: The grapes for this wine are Upper Yarra Valley from Gembrook. Gembrook is known for its volcanic derived red soils and granite outcrop. These quartz rich soils are perfect for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
After several warm growing seasons, 2017 was a return to a classic Yarra Valley harvest producing balanced, elegant wines with wonderful natural acidity.
