This wine is handpicked from our Marsh Vineyard which was first planted in 1971 and uniquely possesses both the fabled pale, alluvial soils renowned for the best whites in the Hunter Valley as well as elevated red soils equally famed for Hunter Valley reds. The vines here are dry grown, relying only on rainfall. The resulting naturally lower yields deliver amazing concentration of flavours. The grapes were whole bunch pressed to minimise phenolics and cold settled for 2 days. Clean juice was racked and fermented cool for 15 days to retain varietal characters. The wine was then lightly fined with skim milk, filtered and bottled early to retain freshness
The 2019 vintage will be regarded as a great vintage in the Hunter Valley. A dry winter was followed by good rainfall in spring and summer which set the vines up with healthy canopies. The ripening period was consistently warm and dry which resulted in yields that were slightly down but quality was very high. The white and red wines are full of flavour and will be highly sought after.

Pale lemon-green in colour.
A nose of limes and lemongrass, with hints of green apple.
An intense palate of citrus fruits along with crunchy green apples and kaffir lime leaves. The long, and balanced palate is supported by a fresh acidity.
