Pale green in colour. The vibrant bouquet exhibits fresh passion fruit and citrus characters, with freshly cut grass in the background. Medium bodied, the zesty palate offers up freshly squeezed lemon and lime flavours which combine beautifully with tropical fruits and a slight touch of spice. Great purity although has wonderful depth due to it being slightly crunchy and fruit driven with crisp acidity and a clean refreshing finish.

“Songlines” are invisible pathways which criss cross the land all over Australia and stretch across continents and ages. The exceptional wine is named Songlines as it perfectly encapsulates the importance of the land, people and knowledge learned over time and across continents.
Leylines is made with the same meticulous care and attention as Songlines and Bylines but with a smaller price tag. The grapes come from vineyard blocks younger than those used for Songlines and Bylines and the fruit has been specifically hand chosen for its approachability as a young wine. Picked late at night to harvest the grapes as cold as possible the grapes were transported to the winery and pressed in tank. After cold settling the clear juice was carefully racked to cooled fermentation tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Cool fermentation was followed by minimal handling, filtration and bottling.
This is a drink now style of wine best consumed while bright and youthful.
