Vibrant pale straw.
The wine displays floral notes, with apricot and grapefruit.
A hedonistic richness of palate true to this variety is supported by flavours of marmalade and marzipan with a lingering finish. A medium-bodied wine that has the intensity and generosity expected from this truly flavoursome variety.
Best drunk over the next three years.Download Tasting Notes
The 2017 vintage certainly provided some challenges to the viticultural team. An atypically cold and wet February meant that careful canopy and crop management was required to ensure the fruit quality was retained.
A once in a lifetime downpour in February devastated a large number of vineyards in Western Australia. Luckily, Millbrook sits some 200m above sea level and the vineyards are planted on steep, rocky slopes. This meant that the rainwater drained into the nearby Gooralong Brook after filling the dam on the property.

Crispy pork belly with apple sauce.
Very pretty floral musky bouquet and warm oily textured palate with chewy nougat/peach flavours.
