Vintage 2017 - First impression is that the warm season has produced an immediately appealing, fruit-filled wine. Grapefruit and pear notes lead to wood spice and a mealy savouriness. In short, this is the archetypal 'something for everyone' wine.

Vintage 2016 - Sourced across hillside plots in both the Upper and Lower Yarra Valley, this is a judicious meld of tension and impeccably ripe melon and stone fruit flavours, nudged with cashew. The wine leaves an indelible impression of coolness; of place; so sensitive, inconspicuous and well judged the handling of oak and mineral thread. There is nothing forceful about this. Rather, it is an exercise in restraint and yet, of flavour line and lingering length. A lovely drink.
