How's it taste?
Pale straw in colour with a green hue, this wine showcases fragrant aromas of fresh lime and musk. The lifted lime aromas precede an incredibly juicy, vibrant and long palate with crisp mineral acidity and luscious citrus. This wine provides drinkability when young, but also rewarded by time in the cellar. Freshly caught crayfish served simply with fresh lime, coriander and just a lick of salted Tasmanian cultured butter.
How was it made?
2021 was a cool year in Tasmania, with good winter rainfall setting the vines up well for steady Spring growth and aided by a very dry November. Happily, neither frost nor wind were an issue this season, and the vines ticked slowly along through the cool season, enjoying regular rainfall. The big rain event at the end of March did less damage than we feared in those regions hit hardest, although flavour ripeness was delayed. As a result, fruit was picked clean later in the season with higher than average Baumes, resulting in wines with complex flavour, ripe structure and lovely mid palate weight. Aromatic wines are ripe and fully flavoured with great length and mouthfeel. A very promising year indeed.
