This delicious wine comes from dryland vines. The oldest parcel is 37 years of age. At one point, the vines were going to be uprooted. Luckily, we recognised their potential and resurrected the vineyard. That’s why I call it the ‘Lazarus’ vineyard – such vine maturity draws a beautiful and focused expression of terroir into the wine. It continues to reward us vintage after vintage.
Soft aromas of dried apricots and ripe tropical fruit, with an oak and vanilla undertow on the nose. On the palate, there’s good acidity and rounded rich flavours of white flesh peaches, almond paste and creaminess.
