winemaking and wine
Pinot Noir 2006An intense nose suggesting black cherries, black plums and wild strawberries, upheld by complex oak handling and hints of Asian spice. The palate shows earthy, gamey characters with wild truffles and mushrooms evident. Ten months in French oak, both new and used allowing the fruit structure to shine through.
Sauvignon Blanc 2007
An awesome wine showing true varietal characters. The palate is textured with fresh cut grass and passionfruit aromatics on the nose. Our usual clean and crisp finish is also apparent and a perfect match for seafood and spicy foods. Chardonnay 2006An extremely small amount of top end wine was made for this batch. Only free run, ultra premium juice was used for total barrel ferments at cool temperatures. This has resulted in a smooth finish with clean refreshing acids and an abundance of fruit sweetness. A serious wine that would improve drastically with age.
Unwooded Chardonnay 2007
Straight varietal characters are obvious with the nose showing limes and pineapple with a creaminess derived from extended lees stirring. An outstanding example of cool climate Chardonnay. Cabernet Merlot 2005Fruit driven, soft and voluptuous, but not wimpy. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot has enhanced the style to be suited to most peoples palates. The nose is chocolate and spice with hints of plums and blackberries evident on the palate. Enjoy now or later.
Fruit driven with a long and soft texture. One of the highest awarded Shirazes at the prestigious “Qantas Western Australian Wine Show” in late 2006. The nose expresses every form of peppers from white to dark and spice from careful oak handling. The palate is soft and medium bodied with abundant fruit overtones.
Albany Dew Rosé 2007
Our fruit driven Rosé shows intense fairy floss and light berry characters.. Made with a completely different technique compared with previuos years, you will find this wine serious but not has lost its fun aspect – slightly sweet and fruitful. Late Harvest Fronti 2007Semi sweet fruity style of table wine made for fun and casual enjoyment. To share with friends or your special partner.
