This wine was handpicked in early February, whole bunch pressed and cold settled for 2 days. Clean juice was racked and fermented cool (14—16°C) for 15 days , lightly fined with skim milk, filtered and bottled early to retain freshness.
The 2016 vintage is regarded as a classic Hunter Valley vintage, with ideal warm growing conditions leading up to vintage, the vines were healthy and had plenty of foliage. A series of storms in January delivered a large amount of rainfall but the fruit held up really well. Good vineyard management and winemaking has resulted in some of the best wines we’ve made, with the white wines in particular having great intensity of flavours.
Enjoy now, or over the next 10+ years.
Very pale yellow with green hues.
Citrus lime and lemongrass, with hints of talc and green apple notes.
Fresh citrus fruit flavours with green apple notes and hallmark minerality, combining with crisp acidity to deliver freshness and structure.
