4 Stars Michael Cooper
A consistently attractive wine. Pale and mouthfilling, it is a medium-dry style with youthful, vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, showing excellent freshness, delicacy and depth.
Best drinking 2018+.

Weather Conditions: Spring and early summer were hot and extremely dry. Much needed rain came in December and January promoting a vibrant and
healthy canopy.

After a warm summer we received more rain just a few days before harvest. Luckily the fine weather returned – and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.
