Region: Adelaide Hills/Eden Valley Grapes: Pinot Gris (66%). Semillon (20%), Sauvignon Blanc (7%), Chardonnay (7%) First Glance: Floral, Citrus, Textural, Long Acclaim: 93pts
The Wine: Matured for 7 months in a combination of stainless steel, new Austrian and seasoned French oak barrels and cocciopesto amphorae to build texture on the palate. Pale gold with green hues. Fragrant aromas of white flowers, citrus, pear and lemon rind, with hints of ginger root, rose petals, white nectarine and cinnamon. A juicy and textural palate of white peach leads into dried lemon thyme and green peppercorn, complemented by crisp acidity for a long and fresh finish.
The Review: Andrew Caillard MW, The Vintage Journal - 93pts "Attractive pear, white peach aromas with flinty mineral notes. A classic dry white style with ample pear, granny smith apple, white peach fruits, fine lacy textures, very good volume and fresh linear acidity. An early drinking style with a wonderful varietal salad of flavours and textures."
