Pale green in colour, this wine has lifted aromas of pears and white peach, with hints of honeysuckle. The palate has powerful stone fruit and pear juice flavours along with a textured mouthfeel. Crisp acidity balances the palate giving it a fresh finish.
The 2018 vintage began with above average rainfall in winter and spring, which set the vines up very well. Budburst was on time, but conditions were very cool for the first part of spring. The summer rains stopped in mid-January and it was very dry for the rest of the summer with only a few millimetres of rain meaning that disease pressure was low. The days were mild with a lot of cool nights which delayed ripening on all varieties. This longer hang-time resulted in excellent conditions for flavour and aroma development.
