Tasting Notes

WINEMAKER NOTES
Pale straw in colour. Aromas of green apple and pear, combine with a hint of herbal, cut grass, perfumed notes. The medium bodied palate has expressive flavours of tropical fruit and nashi pear, with hints of spice, and jasmine. The soft texture and slightly waxy characters combine with clean acidy to provide a fresh finish.

VINEYARD
Riesling picked from of our Tellurian vineyard growing in Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Marsanne and Fiano picked from neighbouring Heathcote vineyards on the Colbinabbin side of the Mt Camel range.

VINTAGE
Spring rainfall and cooler conditions of 2017 were ideal for flowering and fruit set. Warm gentle summer with no extreme heat days meant a slower ripening season with harvest a month later than 2016.

WINEMAKING
Individual grape varieties were picked separately and gently whole bunch pressed prior to settling. The majority of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks with a smaller portion in older French oak. The wine remained on yeast lees with regular stirring for three months. The final blend comprises Marsanne 70%, Fiano 16% and Riesling 14%.
