Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2001 vintage was warm and dry, then March and April temperatures fell to well below average. Occasional rain towards the end of vintage initiated the coveted Botrytis Cinerea on the grapes. Although rare in Coonawarra, this combination of cool, heavy early morning mists and sunny days in late May provided ideal conditions for noble rot to thrive and concentrate grape flavours.
Winemaker Notes
Brilliant yellows and tints of straw green colour. Complex and classic botrytis wine aromas with zesty citrus, cumquat and marmalade, honeyed floral nectar and light toffee. A richly layered palate showing liquor cumquats and marmalade citrus fruits with honeyed, toasty notes. The plush palate is complemented by a fresh zesty lingering finish.
Food Pairing Notes
This unique wine style is ideal chilled as an aperitif with Foie gras, pâté or Terrine and fresh crusty French loaf, or can be enjoyed with a wide range of fruit based desserts and puddings.

Absolute bang for your buck, could easily charge twice as much and still taste as sweet
