About the 2020 vintage … Despite low yields, the quality of the fruit was excellent. The resulting wines are energetic, pure, and are characterised by beautiful natural acidity. It’s aromatic, vibrant, has brilliant depth of fruit.. Very much dry style. Absolutely delicious!
An attractive salmon-pink colour. The nose offers notes of alpine strawberry and orange peel together with a peppery spiciness. Long and linear with a subtle creaminess, the palate delivers flavours of cranberry and just-ripe brambleberry. The citrusy acidity ensures a dry and fresh finish. 12.5% alc.
Reviews of 2019..
94 points, 2021 James Halliday Wine Companion “Estate shiraz and pinot, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented in used French barriques, then on lees for several months. Pink with a touch of salmon; the scented bouquet introduces a fruity/savoury mix on the track through to the finish.”
93 pts Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front. “The style, the price, the quality. It deserves to be more celebrated.
A lovely drink. A stylish one. Both squeaky clean and complex. Twigs, strawberries, toffee apples, dry spice notes. Good extension. Makes you want more. And feels elegant all the while. If it was a person you’d envy it.”
