Tasting Notes

This is obviously a very sentimental wine from our most elevated vineyard, planted in 2001, that pays tribute to my mother, Kaye. It's a vineyard with a stunning perspective over the other vineyards, the winery, house and to the forests and hills beyond. There are some lovely metaphors, no doubt. The site has a lot of quartz and mudstone, a smattering of volcanic soils that have eroded down from the volcanic plateau above, and produces a wine of fragrance, structure and complexity. The 2017 has excellent depth and is gaining earthy complexity. There are red and dark berries mixed with spice, cream and earth on the nose. The palate is fresh, chewy, builds structure and texture as it flows for excellent length. This wine is typically at its best seven to ten years after harvest and this wine is true to that form.
