The Wine.
This wine is made from specially selected fruit from Hugh and Isabelle Robinson’s vineyard on the Old Moorooduc Road, celebrating the individual character of this special site.

Pale gold with elegant aromas of Meyer lemon, aniseed, white nectarines and a hint of nutmeg spice. Fresh and tangy, with lemon fruit, peach skin and a touch of seaspray on the palate. Lovely length and texture on the finish.

Enjoy with chicken pot pie, or baked soy-glazed salmon.

Description

The 2016 Vintage.
Another lovely vintage, generous in style and quality. The even conditions this vintage lead to wines of power and structure, with a lovely core of fruit. While the 2015 wines were all about fruit purity and high natural acidity, our 2016 wines are about rich, ripe fruit and phenolics resulting in intense ripe, structured wines which should, like the 2015’s, cellar well for many years.
