Bruce Dukes says that ’18 was one of Margaret River’s greatest years for white wines, and this wine shows why. A 66/34% blend, one-third fermented and matured in used French oak to build mouthfeel and structure, the balance held in stainless steel. And it does have its cake and eat it, with both fruit flavours and texture enhanced.
95 points | James Halliday, Wine Companion

Complex layered and blended white. Sauvignon offering lifted fragrances of gooseberry and lychee, with Semillon offering fig, white grapefruit and a mineral component. The portion of barrel fermentation introduces exotic spice and textural harmonisation.Fruit is harvested based on flavours and natural acidity. A third of the blend is fermented and aged for 2 months on lees in seasoned French oak barrels to enhance mouth feel and to introduce complexion elements, while the balance Is cool fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness.
