The grapes for this wine were taken from our historic Audrey Wilkinson vineyard. The fruit was handpicked in late January, whole bunch pressed and cold settled for 2 days. The clean juice was then racked and fermented cool (14—16°C) for 15 days in stainless steel. The wine was then lightly fined with skim milk, filtered and bottled early to retain freshness.
The 2015 vintage is regarded as a classic Hunter Valley vintage, with ideal warm growing conditions leading up to vintage followed by a burst of wet weather in late February. Good vineyard management and winemaking has resulted in some of the best wines we’ve made.
Enjoy now or cellar 5-10 years.

Lifted aromas of lemon and lime with green apple and lemon grass notes.
A long and intense palate with lemon and lime juice flavours and a hint of lime zest. A balanced wine with a fresh finish.
