Pale straw with green hues. Aromatically complex with grilled citrus, white fleshed stone fruit, hints of spice, fresh picked nuts and burnt match all leaping from the glass.The palate is flavorsome and vibrant with a seamless acid line holding the wines shape and providing drive and length. White stone fruit and grapefruit citrus flavors are complimented with layers of texture from barrel fermentation and time on lees. A delicious wine from a fantastic site.
A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine – handpicking and whole bunch pressing directly to 500 litre French oak puncheons for a natural fermentation followed by 10 month maturation on lees.
This wine was sourced from the north facing Henk Vineyard, sited in the red volcanic soils of Woori Yallock.
