The 2021 growing season started well with a wet winter and the wettest spring for 10 years encouraging the vines to grow good canopies and a good number of bunches. Summer was unusually cool and dry allowing long even ripening for the grapes, especially shiraz, to develop intense flavours and fine tannins.
The mesmerising fragrance flows intoxicatingly from glass. Think the white blossoms of jasmine and jonquils entwined with sweet musk and exotic lychees.
The sublimely luscious palate brings memories of glacéd pears and old-fashioned lemon bonbons. Notes of citrus bring balance and encourage just one more sip.
