- Vintage Notes
2013 harvest was characterised by small crops of early ripening, full flavoured fruit. One of our earliest harvests in recent times was fantastic due to great natural balance and ripeness at relatively low sugar levels, resulting in moderate alcohols.
Complex citrus and stone fruit with a hint of spice, peach and some cashew flavours.
Mouth-filling and persistent, with a balanced, even mid palate and creamy flavour-some back palate
