ABOUT THE 2011 VINTAGE

A surprisingly hot spring led to an early April budburst and a quick start to the season. Flowering started earlier than usual at the beginning of June, but cool weather meant this was a long and drawn out process, resulting in a lower level of successful fruit being set. While this meant a reduced crop yield we saw this as nature’s way of crop thinning. Fortunately we were blessed with a warm, dry and sunny September which created perfect ripening conditions resulting in an early harvest with all the grapes in by the middle of October.

TASTING NOTE

Light golden in the glass with a delicate mousse, the nose here is soft and nuanced with mellow orchard fruits and tea leaves. The palate is full-bodied  with flavours of toffee apple, late-hung orchard fruit, crumble topping, toasted oats and yellow spice. The finish is savoury, rounded and soft.
