Description

Bright and youthful fruit. Bony structure overlayed with high tensile tannins. It has a long persistence and a fine finish.

2017 was an exceptional year, a classic Yarra Valley growing season. Perfectly balanced vines allowed the grapes to ripen in optimal conditions. In these years, the pristine fruit flavours combined with intensity and power give the wine balance and longevity.

Review
Hand-picked, destemmed whole berry, 10% whole bunches, open-fermented, 15 days on skins, matured in French barriques (20% new) for 18 months. Medium to full-bodied, all the boxes are there, some waiting to be ticked - this really is exceptionally youthful, but it'll all happen over the next 2-3 years.
