The grapes for this wine were hand-picked from both Prophet’s Rock estate vineyards at only 30 hect/ha. The grapes for this wine were handpicked and field sorted, once at the winery the fruit was whole-bunch pressed (done very slowly as specified by Paul) to retain maximum aromatics and freshness. Matured on its yeast lees in seasoned barrels for 9 months.
Beguiling, attractive bouquet of ripe white fruits suggesting nectarine and peach, some red apple and even yellow plum; old oak spices and an oily citrus texture add complexity. On the palate – crisp, fruity, complex, off-dry and lengthy; a wine to savour in a big glass (please); lees and old oak flavours strengthen the core of fruit adding both weight and flavour to a lengthy finish" - 94 Points - Cameron Douglas
