2014 was a dry growing season - a cool and windy spring resulted in slightly reduced yields. A warm February induced high rates of ripening, and was balanced by a well needed two inches of rain. The rain slowed ripening followed by perfectly mild conditions allowed fabulous flavor development during the ensuing weeks. A great year for both reds and whites in McLaren Vale!
Tropical fruits with hints of rockmelon and honeydew. Seamlessly integrated french oak.
Rich, round and luscious, this wine is beautifully balanced with hints of honeycomb, melted butter and a delightful integration of malolactic fermentation and french oak.
