THE SHOUT MAGAZINE Cameron Douglas MS, June 2019 90 Points

"Perfumed and delicate, spicy with a core of fruit, floral with roses and lavender. Dry on the palate with a gentle almost silky texture. Flavours of spice and white peach, pineapple and lychee. Medium+ weight and lengthy finish. Classic, well made in a drink now and through 2024 style"

Very pale straw in colour while the aromas offer the classic, lifted potpourri florals with lychee and roses with a pronounced thread of fresh lemon. The palate is soft, round and luscious but with wonderful weight and depth. Turkish delight flavours add to the wine’s complexity and give way to ripe tropical fruits on the mid-palate while the finish has a pithy lemon character. Long, concentrated and highly memorable. Vineyards and viticulture Our Winery Block and the Woodward Vineyard located just a few hundred metres down the road. Two and three-cane, VSP pruned vines. On heavy clay soils which retain moisture and allow us to grow these vines without irrigation. These clays give weight and mouthfeel to the wine.
