This wine is a pale straw colour in the glass. Opens with lifted notes of ginger spice, grapefruit, fresh jonathon apple with tropical guava fruit and fuijoa. A generous palate packed with a cornucopia of riper tropical fruits, some underlying chalky minerality draws it all out finishing with lingering ripe lemon citrus. It will keep improving over next 10 years.
‘From the Lodge Hill Vineyard; a small parcel of high quality fruit was left on the vine for a further week, the juice cold-settled, but not filtered, 10% barrel-fermented in used French oak, all held on lees for 6 weeks. Cruises along on the supple palate until the finish, when it grows another leg. Has time to grow a fourth leg.’
