Vintage ConditionsIntake of Riverina fruit was completed early in 2010, possibly one of the earliest vintages on record. This saw a reduction of phenolic development in the vineyard and the retention of fruit character. Assisted by lower yields, vintage 2010 produced fruit of a very high quality.
Grape Varietal66% Semillon, 30% Sauvignon Blanc
Vinification and MaturationCarefully selected parcels of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes were chosen for this wine due to their unique properties and blending potential. Picked at their optimum maturity level in the cool of the early morning, the parcels were delivered directly to the winery and gently crushed. The pristine free-run juice was separated from the grapes, slowly settled and fined before being racked and warmed for fermentation. Following fermentation, the wine was lees stirred to enhance the richness across the mid palate and provide complexity for the final wine.
ColourPale straw with light green hues.
AromaFresh and vibrant citrus, snow pea and passion fruit aromas are harmoniously integrated on this intense and varietal nose.
PalateTropical and citrus flavours show on this wine's refreshing palate. A zesty acid backbone provides structure and length while the short amount of time on lees provides weight and texture to this fine palate.
