WINE SPECIFICATIONS

VINEYARD REGION Barossa Valley 100%

VINTAGE CONDITIONS The 2011 Vintage was challenging due to high summer rainfall and
a cool growing season throughout South Australia. Careful vineyard
selection was crucial in maintaining quality in a year with higher
disease pressure. The cooler conditions acted to maintain excellent
acid levels in both reds and whites, with bright, vibrant wines
resulting.

GRAPE VARIETY Botrytis Semillon

MATURATION This wine was matured in stainless steel to maintain varietal purity.

WINE ANALYSIS Alc/Vol: 9.5%

Acidity: 9.1g/L

pH: 3.74

PEAK DRINKING This wine is best enjoyed in its youth but will develop with short term
cellaring.

WINEMAKER COMMENTS

COLOUR A warm golden hue with green tinges.

NOSE This wine is a complex mix of aromas layered
with orange peel, ripe apricots, honey and
pot-puri.

PALATE An unctuous palate, the wine exhibits fresh,
ripe citrus flavours layered with floral notes
and ginger. Although the sweetness is
apparent, the acidity allows the palate to
finish clean and crisp.
