Tasting Notes: Medium colour. A gentle aromatic nose that is quite complex for an entry level wine. Red fruits, cinnamon and truffle are present. The palate is subtle and fine however there is also good weight and it is approachable now. A wine made for drinking over the next 3 years.
Viticulture Notes: 100% Yarra Valley – the grapes for this wine comes from our Yarra Valley, Hill Road property and 2 other neighbouring properties. 2016 will be remembered as one of the warmest and earliest harvests on recored. Above average yields and early ripening kept winemakers busy, highlighting the importance of time spent in the vineyard.
Vinification: De-stemmed to open fermenters (50% whole bunch), short cold soak, natural primary and malolactic fermentation, 19 days on skins, pressed to French barrels (15% new).
Elevage: 10 months in oak, racked once before bottling, un-fined.
Suitable for Vegans.
