Pale straw in colour with green hues. Intense classic lemon aromas, with a hint of white flowers. Bottle aged characters of toast, clove oil and lemongrass emerge and combine with the still fresh citrus and white flowers of its youth. The palate has great length and depth with concentrated power and fresh, pristine lime juice overlaid with toasted brioche, sage oil and lime marmalade.

"Amazingly elegant, floral and fragrant for a six year old. Has complex layers of toast and brown lime flavours. Years left in it. $40."
92 Point Rated Tyson Stelzer Halliday Wine Companion
"Organic and biodynamic principles. A higher diurnal variation than usual produced flavour with natural acidity. Wild fermented, RS 1.7g/L. An enticing secondary style of toast, roast almonds, butter and wild honey over a core of preserved lemon and lime. It concludes long and spicy, guided by a focused line of bright acidity. A touch of reductive burnt rubber on opening quickly blows off."

The growing season for vintage 2016 started well. With a lovely season break when the rain started to fall. Above average winter rain then filled the soils and dams. August and then spring were drier and warmer than average, and the vines got away to a very healthy start. An average December was followed by below average temperatures in January. During the second week of January good rain fell, which kept the vines healthy and grapes ripening. The ripening conditions, flavours and natural acids were all perfect at Pewsey Vale this year.
