On first impressions, this wine has an attractive golden colour. The nose is bursting with flavours of lemon rind, fresh hay, caramelised apple and honey. The palate is rich in flavours of quince, lemon meringue and brioche, with a luscious full texture backed by a well-balanced acidity and lingering aftertaste. The grapes are from a single site on the Dornier property. The soil is made up of red and yellow decomposed granite. We select from the best vines on the site, which lie slightly elevated from the rest of the block on a steep slope. The yields are naturally low here with concentrated fruit, full of flavour.
Nose, expect pungent, in-your-face aromas ranging from freshly cut grass, peas and asparagus, to tropical and ripe passion fruit, grapefruit, or even mango.
On the palate wines taste light bodied with racy acidity and moderate alcohol.
