A little spice and nectarine, a little bolder and rounder than the Cooinda Vale, with less drive and length, though it’s no slouch either, it must be said. There’s fine acidity and flinty texture, a layer of almond and oatmeal, lemon and a touch of zest pushing through the finish. It drinks very well now, even though its best days are a few years away. Lovely, and full of charm. Drink: 2019-2027 (Jun18)

A new vineyard has been established on the Belmont Estate, planted in 2003.The block is on the side of Butcher’s Hill facing north and captures the sun all day. The soils, high in pH, are well drained dolerite and black cracking clays with limestone faults on sandstone parent material.
