Tasting Notes

Lifted lemon rind, sugar snap peas, subtle passionfruit and poached pear aromatics combine with hints of coconut slice. Racy natural acidity provides focus on the palate however the wine provides textural interest and nutty, saline characters and very subtle oak nuance. 12.6%. 8 months barrel maturation in old French Oak.


"Fermented wild in old oak. Impressive. This works. Clear, intense-enough varietal fruit flavour with an integrated overlay of cream, woodsmoke, roasted nut and flint. Noticeably textural without being overtly creamy. It just feels good. It just tastes good." 92 points, Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front
