GOLD - Yarra Valley Wine Show 2018

Pale straw with straw hues. Aroma is complex and intense – struck match, white flowers, lemon leaf, white peach and spice. Depth and volume. The palate is immediately plush and soft. There is a great depth of fruit that builds in intensity as it travels across the mid-palate.
The acidity is fine and fresh and keeps the palate focused. Complexing textural elements of the barrel fermentation interweave with the fruit and acidity to complete the package. The wine is in a beautiful place.

All grapes hand harvested and sorted prior to whole bunch pressing directly to French oak puncheons for natural fermentation. 20% of the barrels were new. Post-fermentation, the wine was matured on its fermentation lees for 10 months in barrel followed by a further 6 months in tank prior to bottling after a single filtration.

Sourced from the Funder & Diamond vineyard, Drive Block. North facing at 240 meters above sea level. Close planted in the red volcanic soil of Wandin East in 1990 using the P58 clone.

Vintage - A warm, dry early season with ideal flowering conditions has resulted in excellent crops and strong varietal flavours. Flowering occurred in late October, fruit set in December and harvest on February 23rd 12.2° baume.
