On the nose we get a bright strawberry sorbet, with candy apple, candied
lemon and a hint of hibiscus.
The weight and mouthfeel starts off oily and soft but transforms mid palate to
a quenching dry finish.
The flavours are incredible with intense strawberry, cotton candy and
Our spur pruned Gamay Noir block in the Four Mile Creek appellation produced
really well in 2022. This block has great air-flow and rich alluvial soils and sand
which produce incredible fruit. The weather of 2022 was lean but favourable
and provided the right heat units needed to develop ripe flavours, along with
cool autumn nights that preserved the freshness and acidity. With double berry
sorting only the ripest berries made it through, where we then did a quick press
of the Gamay. 95% of this wine was then fermented in stainless steel and a small
percentage fermented in four French oak barrels. No malo lactic fermentation was
done and the wine was fermented to dry.
The colour is a beautiful soft pomelo pink (fun fact: the colour was assessed from
Le Centre du Roses and our colour is pantone colour J9). The wine starts off fun
and lively and finishes with a persistent dry finish. This wine is refreshing and
screaming out Summertime! Enjoy this on a patio, on a sunny day, on a rainy day,
with a group of friends - it truly is an anytime wine!
