Winemaker Sandro Mosele has crafted a reputation for some of the finest representations of Australian Pinot and Chardonnay. The vineyard is split into five individual parcels with a variety of clones planted on some very different soils, and everything is done to enhance and express the natural characteristics of each parcel.
The 2008 vintage was characterised by an early start and above average yields. A hot week experienced in March had a pronounced effect on the fruit yet to be picked. Fortunately, the vast majority of the fruit had already been harvested. The unseasonably cool February greatly enhanced the aromatic qualities of wines harvested prior to the heat, making these some of the most expressive and individualistic wines made yet.
Rich bouquet of creamy nectarine, apple, peach and spicy wood. The palate has a rich texture balanced by ripe orchard fruit flavours, oak and fresh acidity.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“A pale lemon nose with hints of green leads to lighter vegetal notes with peapod, light citrus and a long, mineral finish. Well structured with good acidity.” – Gold Medal – 2010 Sommelier Wine Awards
