This wine and the philosophy behind it has not changed significantly since the first wine was made from the 1964 harvest. A blend from most of the blocks on the vineyard, this wine expresses the hallmarks of Eden Valley and the Pewsey Vale Vineyard.

About the Vineyard

A beautiful wet winter set the vines up for a healthy start to the growing season. A drier than average spring meant the vines responded quickly; growing and flowering well and setting a good number of bunches. Summer was warm and dry with cool nights to ripen the grapes and maintain freshness and natural acidity. The balmy Indian summer of early March helped finish the ripening of these perfectly balanced and flavoured grapes.

Wine Production

Since 2011, parcels have been fermented with the wild yeast that comes in on the grapes from the vineyard.

Tasting Notes

Pale straw in colour with green hues. Intense aromas reminiscent of fine dried herbs, white flowers, lemon and lime. The palate shows great length and depth with grapefruit and lime, fresh rosemary, white pepper and a hint of tropical fruit. The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity which balances the flavour intensity,and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring

Food Pairing

Enjoy on its own, or with seared scallops, Thai noodle salad or salt and pepper squid.
