Tasting Notes

  • Vintage: 2016

  • Alcohol: 13%

  • Regions: adelaide hills

  • Varieties: chardonnay

  • Color: Very pale straw.

  • Nose: White stone fruits - peach and nectarine. A suggestion of fig and spice with clove aromatics. Sweet, cedary oak with nuances of almond.

  • Palate: Stone fruits persist amid a pistachio nougat-like creaminess, more than likely derived from extended time on yeast lees. Up-front oak tannins and long, lingering acidity combine to create an enticing phenolic 'grip', enhancing the overall structure of the palate. Delightfully approachable. Why wait?
