VINTAGE
The Geographe, Blackwood Valley and Perth Hills districts experienced perfect vintage conditions that led to a slow ripening process which further enhanced the intensity and flavour profile of the fruit.

TASTING NOTES 

Herbacious wafts of bayleaf and cedar, enriched with sweet tones of blackcurrent and small red berries expected on the nose. This medium-bodied wine has delightful cassis characters interwoven with stunning black and blue fruit characters with a subtle hint of nutmeg.

WINEMAKING NOTES
The wine was produced in open-top fermenters and was hand-plunged twice daily for 14 days. It was then pressed into a blend of new and old seasoned oak barriques, where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was rested in the barrels for 12 months and was bottled in November.

★★★★★

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.
