2007 was a particularly early harvest in the Adelaide Hills, due to a predominantly warm season.

The grapes were riper than usual and have excellent rich, ripe flavours from well exposed bunches. However, yields were very low, below 1 tonne per acre, due to dry conditions.

The fruit was crushed, chilled and pressed immediately, and the juice was then cold settled to clarify it. Then it was fermented in a stainless steel tanks, racked, bentonite fined and cold stabilised.

The wine is fragrant and fruity with aromas of rose-water, muscat and lychee against a spicy background.

The palate has great richness and fruit sweetness, and has fine length and acidity.

Experience with previous vintages has shown that they cellar well in the medium term, and we cautiously recommend cellaring for up to five years.
