Bright cherry red.
Enticing aromatics, with exotic fruits of the forest leaping from the glass.
Raspberry, black cherry, olive tapenade and oolong tea are framed by a subtle char toast character.
Hints of sea spray and a distinct Campari note linger.
The gorgeous aromatics flow through to the palate, with fresh dark cherries and raspberries to the fore.
Underlying subtle red spice, sumac and paprika compliment rosemary and oregano herbaceous flavours. Quartz like acidity provides vibrancy, framed by fine “al dente” tannins.

Very pale straw with a light green rim
An amalgam of aromatics working in harmony – primarily yellow stone fruit (nectarine) and honeydew melon with soft pistachio nougat… and enchantingly/unexpectedly from this white grape variety, blueberry bavarois! Barely recognisable savoury French oak imparts a sensitive touch to sign off on a complex and appealing nose.
A soft and delicate mouth coating/laminated acidity fills out the palate and gently conveys the fermented spoils of Adelaide Hills Chardonnay. Showing more of a citrus edge, with lime splice and finger lime sweetness. Enticing teacake sponge flavours varietally laced with finely grated lemon zest. Already ready, yet no need to hurry – balanced and complete.
