Product Description

Pinot Blanc is a relative newcomer to the Adelaide Hills, but it is a variety well suited to its climate. This single vineyard, hand picked wine was allowed to naturally ferment on skins to extract flavour. A slow ferment and extended barrel maturation has resulted in a textural wine with beautifully balanced acid structure and subtle notes of lemon rind on the palate. Discover the new kid on the block.

Patrick Eckel: 92 of understated

“A light yellow in the glass with lemon and some candied lime on the nose. The palate works against a backdrop of understated grapefruit and meyer lemon that when combined with chalky acidity gives good mouthfeel. The finish is bone dry and bristling with citrus fruits.”
