Reviews  

92/100 Cameron Douglas MS 
Varietal, exotic, precise, fruity, spicy and enticing bouquet. Aromas and flavours of white peach and lychee, roses and apple, a steely flinty minerality, fresh quince and honey suckle with a touch of honey. Vibrant textures on the palate, a mineral laden acid line, spice and lees residue.  Balanced and well made with a lengthy finish.
Drinking best from 2021 through 2024.

 

4½ Stars Winestate Magazine, October 2021
Still very youthful, this softly mouthfilling wine was estate-grown and hand-picked. Bright, light lemon/green, it is weighty and fleshy, with strong, vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, gentle sweetness and a touch of tannin.

Weather Conditions

Good rainfall in spring promoted healthy canopy growth. December brought fine and dry weather, ideal conditions for a successful flowering and pollination.

From January right into harvest a heat wave and drought gripped the region. Our deep-rooting vines and the moisture-holding clay soils enabled our un-irrigated vineyard to thrive in these challenging conditions and produce a healthy crop with outstanding flavour concentration.
