Tasting Notes

Bright straw
A bouquet of floral notes, yellow peach, fresh spice and almond oak.
The palate opens with fleshy stone fruit richness, then reveals vanillin oak and lees contact complexity with some hints of beeswax. It finishes with clean, crisp citrus acidity.
Drink now through 2030.

Barrel fermented and matured in 500L French puncheons (20% new) for 10 months. No mlf. A touch more concentrated than the 2021, this has scents of white nectarines, yellow apples and candied ginger. Vibrant and fresh on the palate, this youthful wine finishes saline and with good persistence.

A cool, late vintage of abstemious yields, 2022 was responsible for a slew of stunning whites in these parts. A nose of truffled lees, segueing to white florals and orange blossom. Largely Mendoza clone from the Valley floor, compressed by a smidge of well positioned new oak (20%). This is a classy estate bottling, boasting density and concentration, belied by exceptional energy. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
