Barringwood vineyard is located on a steep north facing slope overlooking the Don Valley in Tasmania's central North. Established in 1993 the vineyard rises to an elevation of 280m and has one of the longest growing seasons in Tasmania giving their wines delicacy, elegance and immense complexity as well as a distinct backbone of cool climate acidity.
The wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak barriques (31% new) on lees for 6 months. Brilliant very pale straw colour with a faint greenish tinge around the outskirts and a watery hue. Aromas of peach, nectarine and dried honey are intermeshed with citrusy nougat and biscuit notes. Mid weighted and gently creamy in its textural feel the palate features ripe peach and nectarine fruits over dried honey, subtle creme brulee and biscuity nougat elements. Finishes fresh with lively acidity and a long, layered conclusion.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
