Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Youthful peach and cream, yet with underlying complexities of grilled almonds and light vanillan oak. A layered palate, small amount of barrel fermentation sitting tightly with grapefruit and pear. Modern and refreshing.
Vineyard Notes
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from our Henty and Cotterill blocks planted to the Mendoza or Gin Gin clone in 1998. Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam over red and yellow friable clay with slight westerly aspects at elevations of 220 to 250m above sea level.
Winemaker Notes
An unconventional vintage, 2021 was challenging. A cooler lead up into the season, especially compared to previous vintages, meant bigger canopies and a later start. Yields however were low and became a blessing in disguise as 200mm of rain fell across 80 days during peak grape ripening. A late season rain event caused by cyclone activity in early April spelt the end of vintage as winemakers scurried to get remaining grapes into the winery.
