Within the 70 acres of 50 year old Semillon vines we have there is always a block that stands out each vintage and warrants keeping by itself for bottling under our White Label range.
Our vineyards are all organic, having been converted in 2003. In the vineyard we use competitive biology, aiming to be completely chemical free in dry years and using half the organic standard of copper and sulphur in wet years.
A typically cool growing season. An unsettled flowering (windy and a lot of rain) led to very low crops- and very concentrated wines. Chardonnay ripened slowly, with excellent flavours and great natural acidity.
A stunning white variety originating from Campania in Southern Italy. With low yielding vines, smaller bunches and berries, this variety is heat tolerant, with high disease resistance and higher natural acid.
It took a little while for the aromas to be coaxed out but once they presented themselves they hit the spot. Pears and nutty aromas, almost like cashew, some honey and white peach skin. More time reveals some citrus flower and leaf. In the mouth and poached pears drive the bus followed by a subdued ginger and cinnamon like spice. Flavours are long and mouth filling - some delicious textural interest. I’d happily have a couple of glasses.

91/100 - Very good.
Sourced from the foothills of Mt Canoolas, Orange at an altitude of 880 meters above sea level, these vineyards have extremely fertile soil, rich in volcanic ash. It is deep well drained clay loam, and red and brown ferrosol soils derived from basalt, with silty textures being found at hill top sites.
Perfect flowering conditions in late spring helped cement a bountiful yield which was followed by a warm dry summer with virtually no disease pressure.
