The aromas at first are all about pears from ripe pears to sweet dried pears to spiced pear cake. Fragrant bath salts are hooking up with aromatic brown lime cordial and lemon sherbet. Firstly on the palate there are layers of delicious pears embraced in a round and creamy textural mouthfeel. Sweet citrus notes appear with the slightly steely flavour of tinned apricots and pineapple. There is a clean and bright citrus finish that lingers on and on.
“I grew up surrounded by vines and one of my first words was an attempt at tractor. I was hooked and I loved being involved in all the aspects of winemaking from the vineyards to the bottle. While it can be really hypnotic driving up and down the rows of the vineyard, a lot of winemaking is really loud. The harvesters, the crusher and the presses at the winery and the trucks and tractors coming and going – it can be very noisy.” – Charlie O’Brien
