Details

At release, the wine is a pale straw with a slight green hue to the edge.

Delightful aromas of white peach, nectarines, tropical fruit and citrus zest with a hint of cashew.

Fresh flavours of stone fruit combine with cashews and an under lying toastiness from the barrel fermentation to deliver a mouth-filling and enjoyable wine.The wine has a clean, elegant palate, a zesty acid backbone and long, persistent finish.

The fruit for this wine was harvested from the Taylor family estate in the Clare Valley in the cool of the night and delivered directly to the winery to ensure the delicate flavours were retained.The grapes were quickly chilled and then whole berry pressed. After a short settling period, the majority of the juice was filled to French oak barrels for fermentation(10% new; 20% 1 year and the remainder 2 & 3-year-old). A small parcel of the juice was fermented in stainless steel. All parcels were lees stirred for 4 months post fermentation.The wine was then blended, stabilised and fined in stainless steel prior to being bottled in October 2016.

    Rich White Wines

    Full-bodied white wines can sometimes be confused as being red wines when served in black glassware. This is because rich white wines typically undergo similar treatments as red wines in the winery to achieve the bold flavour. This usually means some oak aging, to add that classic vanilla or coconut note, as well as a process called ‘Malolactic Fermentation’, which changes the type of acid in the wine to make wine taste creamier. Many full-bodied white wines will age up to 10 years, although most are in their prime at around 3-4 years.
