Yangarra Roussanne 2017

2017 growing season was one of the coolest on record with a long ripening period. The grapes were hand-picked and carefully basket pressed, with only 60% of the extractable juice used to eliminate any potential broadness. No sulphur was added, and the juice was transferred to French oak barriques (10% New) without any settling or fining, where it underwent wild yeast fermentation. The wine was matured for 7 months, stirred monthly with the lees retained. No fining occured, just filtration. Pale gold colour with green highlights. Rich bouquet of apricots, white peaches, quince and Meyer lemon with subtle nuances of honey and dried white flowers. Deep and rich medium-bodied palate with a crisp acidity and creamy, oily texture for a smooth ride. Wet stone minerals are the foundation for a fruit mix of ripe peach, apple and citrus with undertones of honeycomb toffee and brioche. Closes with a persistent buttery and nutty finish. "Poached quince and pears with spicy and lightly honeyed aromas. The palate has a smoothly formed, fleshy texture. The honeyed, lees-derived influence sits well in this complex and textural white. Drink now." - 92 points, James Suckling

Handpicked Capella Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Mornington Peninsula, Australia The 2017 vintage on the Mornington Peninsula was a classic one in which overall mild and stable conditions produced superb quality fruit and wines of great balance, finesse and longevity. Dubbed by some a “Goldilocks” vintage, 2017 delivered just enough and not too much of everything. Vines ripened slowly, building great depth of flavour while retaining fine balance in sugar and acid. Harvest began in early-March, a little later than the long-term average, and somewhat of a relief after the record-early vintage of 2016. Fruit from select blocks at Capella Vineyard is handpicked, destemmed, and sorted by hand to ensure only the finest berries make it into this beautifully perfumed, supple and silky wine. The aromas are classic Pinot Noir – cherries, strawberries, and earthy spice - with the purity and perfume we have come to expect of Capella Vineyard. The palate combines power and grace with great texture and silky-smooth tannin. Recommended Serving Temperature: 15-17°C Food Pairing: Peking Duck, Roasted Quail, Mushroom Risotto
