Pale pink, with salmon hues.The bouquet of this vibrant, punchy wine offers fresh red berry fruits and fairy floss characters, with hints of talc and spice. Medium-bodied with strawberries and cream flavours combined with ripe watermelon and zesty pink grapefruit. It is a lively, fruit driven wine with a zippy acidity which culminates in a crisp, refreshing and lip-smacking dry finish.
Average winter rainfall followed by a warm/dry spring set up an early start to the growing season. Fruit set was variable, resulting in lower yields across most varieties. The warm summer daytime temperatures combined with low yields saw harvest begin very early, at the end of January (one of our earliest ever) and all whites were harvested before the end of February. An incredible display of Marri blossom meant bird pressure was practically non-existent in the first half of vintage, and a short rain event after the white harvest offered some respite setting up the reds perfectly. Warm conditions continued throughout March, with all of the reds being harvested by the first week of April, our earliest ever harvest completion. In summary, 2021 will be remembered as an excellent vintage in Margaret River. All of the fruit for this wine was estate grown on our Boodjidup vineyard in the Wallcliffe subregion of Margaret River.
