Tasted blind, this was a surprising delight. The grapes are all from the estate vineyards in Eola-Amity Hills, gently crushed and fermented on native yeasts in a combination of new and used 500 litre barrels before aging for 17 months. The finished wine is somewhat reduced, with smoky citrus and mineral aromas framed by a bit of spice from the oak. The texture is creamy and rich but surprisingly lively given the vintage - a lovely success. Drinking Window 2021-2031.
Wine Tasting Notes
Light straw yellow in color, with a complex and alluring nose. Notes of honeycomb, sweet lemon, and brioche harmonize with an earthy fresh straw and captivating flint note. The palate is light-footed and elegant, showing restraint and lovely midpalate silkiness. A touch of gingersnap passes through as the finish comes to a clean and energetic close.
