Due to the bushfires on the east coast of Australia in 2020 Brokenwood was unable to pick any fruit from their Beechworth Indigo vineyard. As a result fruit was sourced from Margaret River and South-West Western Australia to produce this wine with maturation taking place in French oak barriques. Brilliant very pale straw colour with a subtle tinge of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Rising out of the glass are elevated scents of white peach, ripe nectarine and dried honey followed by some citrusy nougat characters and light biscuity oak notes. Possessing terrific intensity and a nicely rounded feel, driving the palate are rich fleshy white peach, nectarine and dried honey flavours with citrusy nougat characters, faint cashew and spice flowing onto the back half. Excellent freshness with a long textured aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 13.5%
