WINEMAKER NOTES

Pale straw in colour. Aromas of green apple and pear, combine with a hint of herbal, cut grass, perfumed notes. The medium bodied palate has expressive flavours of tropical fruit and nashi pear, with hints of spice, and jasmine. The soft texture and slightly waxy characters combine with clean acidy to provide a fresh finish.

VINEYARD

Riesling picked from of our Tellurian vineyard growing in Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Marsanne and Fiano picked from neighbouring Heathcote vineyards on the Colbinabbin side of the Mt Camel range. 

VINTAGE

The warm dry conditions for 2018 continued into the 2019 growing season. Low rainfall over winter, followed with a dry spring, and hot summer. Vintage commenced in the third week of February, consistent with average start dates, and after looking like we would have a quick, condensed harvest, conditions cooled and the vintage extended slightly longer than the average. 

WINEMAKING

Individual grape varieties were picked separately and gently whole bunch pressed prior to settling. The majority of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks with a smaller portion in older French oak. The wine remained on yeast lees with regular stirring for three months. The final blend comprises Marsanne, Fiano and Riesling.
