Aromas of tropical fruit are followed by a zesty, fresh palate and clean finish.
VINTAGE 2016 Cool, dry spring and early summer conditions through to the end of January allowed the whites to develop great flavours and high acidity. These conditions became humid and sub tropical in the last week of January, as an uncharacteristic tropical low sat over the lower Fleurieu Peninsula. From January 22nd to February 3rd we had 90mm of rain, with the temperature being no greater than 33 degrees and not falling at night below 19.5 degrees, very little wind and constant cloud cover. These combined conditions proved challenging for effective fruit ripening. March and April returned to normal average climatic conditions, with the majority of blocks coming through without much splitting. Fruit quality proved exceptional - typically those on our lighter alluvial sands. Harvesting was completed in the first week of April.
In 1969, the first vines were planted and a winery established in this area, which was traditionally sheep grazing pastures. As such, the locals considered it would only ever be one of a kind and thus the road leading to it was named “Winery Road”. Despite their doubts, the area has flourished and is now recognized as an official Wine Region.
