Grown in the mineral rich soils of the Hilltops region nestled on Australia’s Great Dividing range at elevations over and above 1699 ft. This wine is pale straw in colour. Citrus and stone fruit dominate the aromas with subtle chalkiness. These characters flow onto the palate with a fine texture contributed from its 4 months maturing on lees. Crisp acidity finishes up this wine which gives it length and liveliness.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Notes From The Winemaker: A drier than normal winter in 2016 meant budburst happened 2 weeks earlier than usual. Normally this put us at slight risk to frost but some spring rainfall helped the frost stayed away and ensured healthy growth in the vines. While it was a dry growing season, maximum temperatures were still moderate and the harvest dates for all varieties ended up falling back to the their expected times, not earlier as experienced in other grape-growing regions. The Hilltops region is blessed with mostly drier and warmer days with some cooling relief at night due to its continental position. This fruit was harvested in the coolness of the early morning before undergoing a long cool ferment in stainless steel tanks. The wine was quickly cleaned up after ferment, filtered and bottled to retain maximum fruit freshness.
