Aged for 10 months in a combination of new and seasoned oak. Brilliant pale straw colour with highlights of green around the edges and a watery hue. Aromas of white peach and dried honey mix with hints of cashew, citrusy nougat and wet stone notes. Elegant and refined the beautifully proportioned palate has a gentle creamy feel to it with white peach, citrus and pear fruits overlaying a dried honey, delicate roasted almond, nougat and spice back drop. Finishes long and stony with a measured freshness and great finesse.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews…..
Wonderful season in the Yarra Valley, so little surprise that a wine of this class emerges. It’s sourced from two vineyards – at Yering Station and Coldstream and naturally fermented in 500L French oak puncheons. The power of the Mendoza clone is immediately evident on the nose and reinforced on the palate with beautiful floral notes and a savoury element bringing complexity. The palate combines elegance and refinement with the power of that Mendoza clone, delivering to a super long palate. Exceptional wine. Drink 2023-2035.

An average vine age of 20 years. Barrel fermented in 500L barrels (20% new) with 10 months in barrel and another five months in tank with lees. A bright green gold. With its aromas of white peach, tangerine oil, some toasted hazelnuts and a little vanilla bean, this has immediate appeal. Equally engaging on the gently fleshy, impeccably balanced and very long palate. A wine to drink and enjoy now and over the next five to seven years. Drink by 2028.
