The wine shows fresh and vibrant grapefruit notes that linger on. White peach and pear characters are supported by passionfruit and citrus notes. This wine is well-balanced between fresh natural acidity and upfront fruit characters. The style is clean and dry, resulting in a crisp and refreshing finish.
90 Points & 4.5 Stars Sam Kim's Wine Orbit
Attractively fruited and beautifully fragrant, the wine shows honeydew melon, crunchy apple, lemon zest and white floral aromas, followed by a lively palate offering bright fruit flavours with fine texture and crisp acidity, finishing long and vibrant.
The fruit was picked in the cool of the morning and processed using anaerobic techniques. The cool fruit was de-stemmed, crushed and lightly pressed for settling. Clear juice was then racked and warmed for fermentation in stainless steel vats. We used cultured yeasts to accentuate the fruity, varietal characters in the wine. Following fermentation, the wine was racked off the lees to retain the fresh fruit characters before being blended and bottled at the Estate.
After consecutive drought years the 2022 growing season started with some wet weather that carried on until late spring. Excellent fruit-set early December resulted in crop levels bigger than average. Ripe flavours at low sugar levels allowed us to pick early to retain the natural acidity in the juice compared to previous years. In what will ultimately go down as a ‘challenging’ vintage, unwavering vineyard preparation delivered excellent fruit condition and flavour concentration.
