Light straw in colour with pretty green hues. Fresh and inviting bouquet of preserved peaches and grapefruit mingle with hints of cucumber and yeasty creaminess. A fresh and lively palate with peach and citrus dominating the fruit with hints of tropical fruits, citrus zest, cucumber and a touch of minerality on the finish.
A much needed soaking winter and early spring rains led to a great start to the 2014 vintage. This didn’t last as late spring and early summer rain was nearly nonexistent, adding to the flow on from the previous season’s drought. Yields were still below average, exacerbated by strong wind events during flowering and very hot conditions in January with 14 consecutive days over 40C. Vintage was looking like a hot, hard and fast one until mid-February, when the heavens opened up and dumped 90ml in the Barossa Valley and 150ml in Eden Valley. Concerns for crop loss were fortunately alleviated as there was minimal grape splitting in the whites and all the reds just said thank you very much. After a three week delay for grapes to return to previous ripeness levels, the rest of vintage was mild - extending hang time for great flavour development and resulting in a calm and steady intake of great quality fruit. The nice weather broke midway through April and hindered our patience with late ripening Eden Valley Cabernet, so our last crush for the year was the 28th of April. Overall, a very good vintage with a few anxious moments thrown in.
