Winter and Spring were both cool with plentiful rainfall. Summer was mild, which led to a late start to vintage under clear sunny skies with cool nights. Yields were above average, with good flavour ripeness at low sugar levels.
Chalmers - Colbinabbin, Heathcote.
Ancient Red Cambrian soils interspersed with copper-infused basalt (greenstone). Easterly aspect, east-west row orientation. VCR3 clone close-planted in 2009. Cane pruned. Hand-picked on 16/03/17.
Very pale straw colour with green tints. The nose displays intense aromas of green apple, pear and grapefruit. The palate is crisp, dry and refreshing, with a lovely textural component to the very long finish.
