A white blend that is mostly Riesling with a helping hand from Viognier, Pinot Grigio, Fiano and Savignan.

With no extended periods of heat from mid-December to harvest, the maximum and minimum temperatures during January and February were below average for the Clare Valley. 30mm of much needed rain arrived at the end of January, which did a lot more good than harm – coming at exactly the right time to give the vines a much-needed drink and freshen up. This was followed by cool nights and crisp mornings in late February and early March, slowing things down in the vineyard. These are conditions that are pretty much ideal for achieving concentrated flavours and the sugar levels required. Good weather for grapes.

Gentle, fresh aromas of citrus, stonefruit and tropical fruit with a hint of florals in the mix. Soft and light bodied with enough zingy acidity to balance the core of citrus/stone fruit flavours very nicely.
