Pale straw with green hues.
Lifted aromas of grapefruit rind and lemon curd entwined with flint and yellow fruit.
Lime tart, lemon blossom and fresh pine are matched by tightly wound, edgy acidity. The wine is both complex and fresh, in the most modern way.
Has both the structure and concentration to continue to develop for at least five years from vintage.
The grapes were whole bunch pressed, without settling, directly to French barriques, 40% of which were new and 60% of which were one year old. The wine underwent wild fermentation and spent 8 months on lees. After fermentation, the barrels were topped and stirred only once before being lightly fined and bottled in December 2019.

Best Australian Dry White Table Wine

Whole-bunch pressed to barrel, wild ferment, mlf blocked. Matured for 8 months. Salted pink grapefruit, yellow peach, green peppercorn and jasmine tea collide with pine needles, coastal air and honeysuckle. On the palate the acidity is electrifying, the impact of oak felt most resoundingly on the back of the palate. This is concentrated and dense and just needs a little time to pull together. Good length of flavour shows it'll get there.
