Bright straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Elevated nectarine, white peach and dried honey aromas are interwoven with biscuity oak, cashew and spicy nougat. Medium to full bodied the palate is both generous and creamy in its mouthfeel with nectarine, dried honey and white peach flavours overlaying a biscuity nougat, cashew and spice back drop. Excellent depth and range with perfectly judged acidity and a long expansive aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews….
Grown on a site 20km south of the Margaret River township. It's a fine-boned and lengthy wine but it doesn't leave flavour behind. Elegant power is a good way to describe it. It's flinty but not too much so, fleshed with stone fruit, touched up with meal and green apple, and intricately complex to close. All the while sweet fruit flows. It's an easy wine to get excited over. Drink by 2029.
