NEW SOUTH WALES
Drinking well now.
Pale straw with a hint of yellow.
Aromas of ripe stonefruit, peach blossom and white nectarine with a hint of green apple are supported a fine nutty character and subtle background oak.
The palate opens immediately with fresh fruit flavours balanced against a pleasant creamy texture and soft finish. Oak is supportive yet restrained and the acid provides good drive and length, which is nicely balanced by a little sweetness.
The climate building up to the 2016 vintage was mild and cool which helped the grapes produce excellent varietal flavours with good natural acid. However, during summer early rain and high temperature conditions were present for a few weeks of the growing period meaning fruit reached maturity a lot earlier than expected for most varieties. All this made 2016 a very challenging vintage this but resulting fruit was very good.
