TASTING NOTES

This Library Release wine has been gently maturing in our cellars. On the nose it has ripe, soft fruits with lots of citrus, ripe peach and yellow apple, alongside nutty, toasted oak. The palate feels juicy and bold, with fresh lemon, stone fruits and ripe pineapple notes. The texture is creamy, with hints of toasted hazelnuts and toffee popcorn bringing a little more weight and complexity from the oak ageing and extended time in bottle. A lively freshness and salty minerality lead to a long, elegant finish. 

ABOUT THE 2016 VINTAGE

A mild spring resulted in a mid-April bud burst. The weather during flowering was warm and dry resulting in abundant fruit being set. Early August saw 50% of fruit dropped to intensify flavour and concentration. Harvest began in late September and resulted in fruit of exceptional quality.
