As with the previous two years, our cropping levels suffered from cool and damp flowering conditions, producing approximately 22 hL/ha ( ca 1.7t/a). Like the following wine, it is approximately 85% fruit from the Dry River Estate and 15% fruit from another vineyard (farmed to our specifications) blended for finesse.
The wine is straw gold with a clean and forthcoming varietal nose: spices, stonefruit and dried fruits lifted with the smell of jasmine. The palate is round and opulent, with noticeably concentrated flavours of sweet, ripe golden queen peaches and pears plus cloves and cinnamon and a lingering aftertaste. It should be ideal for drinking between 2 and 5 years if cellared under good conditions.
