    Tasting Notes:

    Attractive flinty citrus blossom aromas, spicy pear and almond notes. A rich bodied and intriguing style where mouthfeel and textural elements are key. This well- balanced wine finishes with freshness and zest.

    Vineyard Information:

    The grapes were grown at the Peters Creek Road Vineyard in Kangarilla. This vineyard sits at an altitude of 330 meters above sea level which ensures warm days but, more importantly, cool nights. The cool evenings are ideal for growing Arneis as this slows sugar ripening and helps develop flavours whilst retaining natural grape acidity.

    Winemaking Notes:

    Hand harvested at full flavour ripeness, gently whole bunch pressed straight into old large format oak barrels on full press solids, allowed to slowly begin natural fermentation, slow cool fermentation at 15-18ºC. Fermented to dryness and matured on press and fermentation lees for four months prior to being bottled.
