Powerful nose of fresh lime and preserved lemon, white peach, apricot and tangerine combine with a veritable scaffold of savoury characters; sea spray, struck match, hazelnuts and spiced nougat all mesh together with the fruit making for a complex nose. The palate is generous and complex in both taste and texture. A spearhead of lime citrus wave cuts a refreshing line through a creamy, textured palate stone fruit flesh culminating in length that is both long and luxurious.
Bright straw-green; a rich and complex wine with good balance between the fruit, oak (62% new and 1yo) and acidity (7.2g/l). The quality of the fruit in barrels selected for this wine (compared to those relegated to Williams Crossing) is clear. The warm vintage hasn't impacted on the high elevation Macedon region.
