A lifted and complex nose, with tones of passionfruit pulp and lemon zest intertwined with flinty notes of wet slate, with a subtle roasted almond character lingering in the background.
The palate walks the line between savoury and fruit driven with perfection. The mid palate is subtle and fleshing with nashi pear and gooseberry. The finish shows cashew and a beautiful smoky note. Acidity is balanced and long. A full flavoured, balanced and complex version of a Margaret River stalwart.
