Parcels of fruit were harvested from individually selected blocks in a single
vineyard from Karridale (southern Margaret River) – chosen for its cooler
micro-climate presenting purity and linear acid profile.
A mixture of clean and turbid juice was racked into a selection of new and aged
French oak from several cooperages for barrel fermentation over 10 mths.
Brilliant in colour, this wine displays white peach and citrus on the bouquet
and a touch of toasty oak. On the palate, these nuances intensify and manifest
themselves. While the wine has spent eleven months in French oak barriques,
the oak is beautifully crafted and integrated, with no other techniques used to
pollute the purity of the variety.
This wine shows best with brasserie roast chicken or international cheeses, and
will cellar for four to five years.
