Light to mid, bright yellow hue. The bouquet has grapefruit, passionfruit and fresh garden herb aromas. Clean, fresh and vibrant. Good intensity and refinement; direct, incisive flavours, with decent persistence. Fruit drives the wine, ably assisted by lively acidity. A fine wine. 90 Points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review
Organically grown fruit for this wine was sourced from three different locations in the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate. The vineyard is planted on undulating northern and eastern facing slopes and has duplex soils of ironstone gravel and loam over a clay sub soil. The fruit is lightly pressed into stainless steel tanks and allowed to settle for 24 hours. The juice is then racked off its heavy lees to 500 litre French puncheons for wild yeast fermentation. Some barrel stirring through fermentation and post fermentation occurred resulting in a wine with complexity and individuality. The wine was transferred out of barrel after 10 months on lees before being bottled. Minimal sulphur additions made prior to bottling.
