Winemaker's Notes

A consistent ripening season with relatively mild temperatures has ensured that the 2012 vintage is seen by many as a particularly strong year for both white and red wines. Good natural acid retention, strong varietal definition and an intense depth of flavour were hallmarks of the year particular on Chardonnay, but across all white wines. The winemaking focus was then on preserving these without too much interference from us.

Pale straw color in the glass. On the nose, intense notes of white florals, ginger, ripe citrus and stone fruits. Upfront round, juicy mouth feel with notes of white peach and tropical fruit all held in place by a clean mineral acid framework.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright yellow-gold. Fresh tropical fruits and hints of honey and lemon curd on the nose. Fleshy and open-knit, with slightly warm pineapple and mango flavors perked up by a gingery nuance. Closes smooth and broad, with good length and lingering spiciness."
