Pale straw in colour, this wine has a nose of ripe, green citrus fruit and Christmas spices. The palate is fresh and richly textured, with notes of ripe pears, almonds and peaches, and a clove-like finish.

The 2021 Old Vines White comes from vines up to 70-years old built around Chenin Blanc, 62% in this vintage, barrel fermented in 500-litre barrels and a couple of foudres. This has a lovely bouquet with dried honey, white flowers, honeysuckle and light grilled walnut aromas. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, gorgeous texture with impressive tension on the finish. This is an outstanding Old Vine White that will age with style.

A graceful white, with creamed apple, pickled ginger, verbena, peach skin and chamomile notes gliding across the palate. Sleek and finely meshed, layering lightly mouthwatering acidity and an underlying streak of salinity with the pretty flavor range. Chenin Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Sémillon and Verdelho. Drink now through 2026. 2,086 cases made, 52 cases imported.

Composed of a blend of 62% Chenin Blanc, 10% Clairette Blanche, 9% Viognier, 7% Grenache Blanc, 6% Sémillon and 6% Verdelho, the 2021 Old Vine White is bright, fresh and focused with succulent stonefruit aromas that sway with a brilliant floral essence and sweet citrus tone. Medium to full-bodied, the mouthfeel is textural and refined with a delightful crunchy minerality and exuberance that displays power and finesse. There is a lovely flutter of oak spice across the long and subtly spiced finish. Just over 25,000 bottles were filled after resting for 11 months in third and fifth use French oak.
