About:  The fruit for this wine was harvested from the Taylor family estate in the Clare Valley at night and delivered direct to the winery. All of the fruit was whole berry pressed, quickly chilled and then pressed. After a short settling period, the majority of the juice was filled to French oak barrels for fermentation (10% new; 20% 1 year and the remainder 2 & 3 year old) and the remainder was fermented in stainless steel. The barrel fermented parcel was lees stirred for 4 months. After 6 - 8 months oak maturation, wine was then blended, stabilised and fined in stainless steel prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes:   This wine is a pale straw with a slight green hue to the edge.  There are delightful aromas of white peach, nectarines, tropical fruit and citrus zest with a hint of cashew.  On the palate there are fresh flavours of stone fruit combine with cashews and an underlying toastiness from the barrel fermentation to deliver a mouth-filling, enjoyable wine. It has a clean, elegant palate, a zesty acid backbone and long, persistent finish.
