The Details

Tasting Note This wine is pristine and intense with aromas and flavours of lemon myrtle and tea tree blossom. With crushed quartz minerality, it is evocative, seamless and ageless.
Best Enjoyed With Enjoy with kingfish sashimi and chilli lime dressing, or vegetable spring rolls with vietnamese herbs.
Treatment The grapes from the oldest vines on our Pewsey Vale Vineyard Estate are handpicked and the juice wild fermented, then aged for a few months on lees before bottling and release. The 1961 Block is proof that a healthy, biodiverse vineyard needs little winemaking intervention, as the grapes and yeast from the vineyard combine perfectly to make this evocative wine.
