Strong, luscious, musk aromatics of the Gewurztraminer are complemented by lifted floral and lime aromas from the Riesling. The Pinot Grigio and Fiano provide texture and adds some structural acidity with the Verdelho adding a layer of complexity. The palate is bright and fresh with spice and citrus fruits and deliciously cleansing acidity on the finish.
This wine is made from a blend of fruit grown in the Goulburn Valley and Murray Darling vineyards. Following delivery and crushing of the grapes during the cool of the night, the blended juice was cold settled and racked. An aromatic yeast was used for inoculation and this parcel was cool fermented for 21 days. The resulting wine is fresh and vibrant showing notes of lovely of aromatic and tropical fruit flavour.
Another season has come and gone and we are once again astounded by the joys and challenges that Mother Nature continually throws our way! 2018 is a very good year for quality, the season was warm and dry and we were kept on our toes as once we started picking everything ripened up pretty quickly. Intense flavours came in late this year - holding off picking to allow maximum flavour means alcohol in the grapes will also marginally rise - so resulting alcohols will be a little higher than we saw in 2017. The whites are all fruit forward, with lovely fresh acidity whilst the reds have excellent colour and flavour to match. This vintage is a beauty and subsequently we have made some cracking wines in 2018.
