Distributor Note:

The fruit for this wine, like the 2015, came from the Quarry Hill vineyard site at Murrumbateman in the Canberra District. Spur pruned vines grafted onto devigorating rootstock. Very low yields in 2016 (half the 2015 pick) have built some concentration and weight into the fruit. Picked on fruit flavour, not acid, the fruit was given a whole bunch press with a little sulfur, the juice briefly settled then racked to tank for ferment.  Bright, with white pear and candied lemon. A long, sapid trail of flavour with a hint of phenolic chew.
