The base wine is made from chenin blanc grapes from our 1963 block, with bright fruit picked at the perfect time. The base wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, triaged in the bottle with EC1118 yeast, and stored underground on lees at 17°C for 14 months. After lees ageing, the wine was disgorged and dosage with shiraz wine.

Salmon and peach-blush in color with aromatics of brioche, strawberries and cream. The wine is balanced and creamy, expect fresh white strawberries and crème brulee on the palate, with a nutty almond and savory finish.


Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Score - 95

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
