2016 Rosé ($30.00 a bottle) *SOLD OUT

Made from our Sangiovese our Rose’ has many attributes of that variety ; rose petal aroma, summer berries and red cherry fruit. The dry clean finish with it’s taut fresh acidity makes it a perfect match with food and summer drinking.

An earthy autumnal pear aroma is followed by a palate of tropical fruits and spice. The richness of fruit its tempered by a lovely apple acidity on the finish. This luscious will continue to develop richness and a fuller mouth feel. This luscious wine will continue to develop richness and a fuller mouth feel. Cellar to 2019.

Winemaker’s notes: Whole bunch press – slow temp controlled primary fermentation, 6 months lees integration, naturally settled, no filtration before bottling.

2016 Chardonnay ($35.00 a bottle)

An aroma of lifted white plum and lemon with hints of nutmeg spice. Lovely juicy mid palate balanced by a nice acid line. A creamy texture that will build with time in the bottle.

Winemaker notes: Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, with the unclarified juice fermented in French oak puncheons and barriques, with maturation following in the same barriques for almost 9 months. Approximately 20 % of the barrels were left to undergo the acid softening malo-lactic to help with mouthfeel and balance prior to blending and bottling in December, 2016.

2016 Sangiovese ($35.00 a bottle)

A deep, glimmering ruby colour which has a lifted cherry and rose hip aroma with a hint of vanilla and spice. This is a vibrant wine with ripe tannins that walks a fine line between red and black fruits. A delight to drink.

2016 Pinot Noir ($45.00 a bottle)

A very attractive nose, with bright forest fruits, plums and spice. There is an abundance of dark vibrant fruits lifting the palate, helped by some subtle spicy oak. A very approachable young wine that will become even more expansive in the medium term.

Winemaker ‘s notes:  Made with a mix of the three Panton Vineyard clones (MV6, G9V15 and 115), each clone was hand-picked and fermented separately in small 2 tonne open fermenters with daily hand plunging. After nearly 3 weeks total maceration on skins, each batch was gently pressed to barrel for a maturation period of 8 months, prior to blending and bottling in December, 2016.
