Light pale straw in colour. An intense mix of aromatics ranging from tropical guava and asparagus with underlying melon and hints of spiced herbs. The palate is pristine and fresh with a textural pithiness dancing on the tongue. Although this wine is best consumed while young and fresh, further complexity will develop over the next 3-5 years.

2019

The 2019 has been a real roller coaster of a vintage with freak weather events, lower than expected crops and plagues of animals. Winter rains over the Great Southern were steady and provided the vines with good soil moisture which allowed the vine to power on into a dry and mild spring. Frost hit some low lying vineyards in the Frankland River wine growing area hard destroying crops and reducing yields. The weather during the grape ripening into early vintage was more mild than average, with notably colder nights.

Fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to prevent oxidation and retain flavour. Only the free run fraction (550L/T) was used for this wine and fermented at 12-14°C. A small portion was fermented in small stainless vessels (300L) and barrel fermented (~10%) to add mouthfeel and texture.
