Color: Pale straw in color with brilliant clarity and youthful green tints.
Aroma: An intensely varietal nose featuring lifted citrus notes, freshly squeezed lemons and sublime floral nuances.
Palate: Appealing, lively, and spine-tingling to its core, the palate perfectly balances the flavors of lime juice, lemon curd and subtle tropical notes with naturally occurring acidity in a generous, yet tightly wound, persistent finish. A wine with a long cellaring potential ahead of it.
Potential of at least at least 10 years
Hand selected parcels were chosen from across our famed Golden Hillside vineyards, including the original Mort’s Block Vineyard that started it all. 100% Watervale fruit, only minutes from the Kilikanoon winery.
A generally cool and dry vintage with lower than average rainfall before and during the harvest. Despite the drier conditions, cropping levels were generally about average, with even ripening and perfect flavor development across all our Golden Hillside vineyards.
A high quality year, with all parcels kept and vinified separately until the final cuvée was assembled. The mostly hand picked and hand sorted selections were crushed, destemmed and cool fermented, allowing the variety’s renowned intensity of flavor and crisp natural acidity to be retained throughout the process.
