Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh cut lime in color. Delicate combination of fresh gooseberry and passion fruit on the nose. Bright fruit characters on the palate. Complex yet elegant palate, full of focused tropical fruits with a mineral-acid bone through the finish.

About Philip Shaw:

In 2003 Philip jumped off the corporate train to fulfill his family dream. For the original 'square peg in a round hole', Philip has found his winemaking home and is realizing his family dream at Koomooloo. "I always said that when I turned 40, I was going to do my own thing - with family and friends - in Orange. One thing led to another and 15 years later, I'm finally doing it."

Philip has been making wine in Australia for more than 4 decades and approaches each aspect of winemaking with a healthy mix of innovation and unrelenting quality standards. He steps out with conviction and carves his own way, a new way, time and time again. He has pioneered dozens of popular Australian wines during his career and is renowned for his commitment to advancing Australian wines through relentless testing of varietal and clonal suitability for optimum site selection, winemaking innovation, and ultimately, crafting modern, vibrant, and high-quality wines.
