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

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

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 Viognier, Fiano and Riesling.
