Lifted bouquet of nectarines and stone fruits with an underlay of toasty spice.
The full flavoured palate shows great acidity and balance with a velvety oiliness and minerality. Flavours of white peaches, nectarines and apricots, full bodied, well balanced, complex wine. A superb expression of the Barossa Ranges “terroir”.
Hand-picked grapes from Hobbs Single Vineyard.
Fermented in open vats with natural yeasts. Matured for 12 months in a combination of old French oak barrels and tank before being bottled. Matured in bottle for 10 months before release.
Beautiful with Asian and South Indian flavours, pairing beautifully with a spicy pork stir fry or curry.
The resulting wet soils from the 2017 growing season provides a good foundation for our dry grown vines. Cool wet weather early in the year was followed by a long spell of warm weather, perfect for slow ripening and delivering well-structured, aromatic fruit.
