The 2012 vintage in Coonawarra was noted for slightly warmer
conditions and well below average rainfall especially throughout the later stages
of the growing season.
A small proportion of this wine was barrel fermented then
matured on yeast lees for approximately six months.
Appealing flavours of white peach, pear and citrus, with hints of
brioche, highlight the elegant palate. The mouth feel is subtly rich and creamy
with elegant oak, enticing fruit and fine acid that is fresh and lingering.
Food Pairing Notes
Pan fried chicken breast stuffed with finely sliced mushroom
and chorizo served with asparagus. Marinade tofu in soy, ginger, cumin and
sesame oil then cook into a stir-fry with steaming hokkien noodles, shitake
mushrooms and bok choy.
