The 2021 is the final, most fruit driven version of this offering and represents three vintages of finessing the style where we feel comfortable seeing this wine as a long term proposition. It is an ode to tradition in many ways, chiefly its ability to bottle age and have sufficient intensity of flavour and complexity to stand the test of time. By using Chenin Blanc grown in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River and applying barrel fermentation and oak maturation we have been able to make a serious food wine with a fine flint–like mineral qualities and persistent, intense fruit flavours with a tight long acidity to finish.
Colour: Pale - medium yellow straw.
Aroma: A complex wine with aromas of pears, green apple, honeydew melon, peach, buttered popcorn and quince, lifted floral notes of jasmine. A clear oak contribution with spicy nutmeg oak.
Palate: Intense stone fruit flavours and depth, toasty oak with a very long tight minerally acid finish.
Food matching: A wine that holds it own across any flavoursome dishes. Enjoy with pork chops.
Cellaring: Twelve months will see some interesting bottle development but will continue for many years to reward.
