Ned Goodwin

"Optimally ripe, light to gently mid-weighted, tensile and charged with guava, greengage and gooseberry. The acidity, while bright and lifted, is attractively juicy and nourishing, rather than brittle. Well done."

Viticulture

Viticulture

Above average winter rainfall set up the growing season with optimal soil moisture. Spring was cool and wet, with good conditions during late flowering. Cool weather continued into summer, with mostly moderate conditions remaining right through to a delayed harv est, maintaining vine balance, extending ripening, and ensuring excellent aroma and flavour development.
