riesling 2016


TASTING NOTES

Bright straw-yellow colour with lemony-green hues, lighter on rim. This is very refined and elegant in expression with bright and lively lime fruit aromas alongside minerals forming a pure, steely and refreshing bouquet with great clarity. Dry to taste, tightly bound and concentrated flavours of limes infused with minerals show excellent fruit extract and refined phenolic textures. Delicate floral lift and subtle, savoury and toasty secondary complexities add detail and nuance. The palate is balanced by refreshing and mouthwatering acidity which carries the flavours to a very fine, long-lingering finish.



WINEMAKING

Grapes for this wine were hand picked and whole bunch pressed. Cool fermentation in stainless steel tank to retain freshness and character of the vineyard. Certified organic fruit.

pinot noir 2012


TASTING NOTES


Dark, deep ruby-red colour, with slight purple hues, lighter on rim. This has a firmly concentrated and tight bouquet of aromatic black cherry and dark red berry fruit, complexed by subtle nuances of thyme herb, liquorice and spicy oak, unfolding violetty perfumes with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the fruit flavours are vibrant and succulent, and well-concentrated with a firm core of red berry and dark cherry fruit, thyme herb, savoury whole cluster perfumes and violet florals. The extraction is significant, with very fine-grained, powdery tannins supporting the fruit alongside bright, lacy, lively acidity enhancing the fruit sweetness. The palate features a firm and linear, driven core that carries the wine to a very long and sustained finish with cherry and herb elements. This is an elegant and firmly concentrated Pinot Noir with vibrant and succulent dark cherry fruit in the Bendigo style. Match with lamb, beef and venison
