Description

Maximum order of 2 bottles

Vintage: 2013 was a strong vintage on the Mornington Peninsula with clean crops of excellent quality

Colour: vibrant pale straw

Nose: White citrus blossom notes give way to an exceedingly complex nose of stone fruit, vanilla, spicy fennel, finishing with leesy complexity and hints of oyster shell.

Palate:  focused to begin, the palate follows a powerful tight yet generous line with more dark spices.  Opening to citrus, leesiness and subtle almond meal texture, the complexity continues to build.  Finishing with great persistence, purity and length; this is a wine befitting of the hallmark ‘Eocene ‘.

Notes:

Integrated oak

Spice: touch of fennel, sweet spice

White citrus blossom/lemon grass

Depth and darkness in the spice, hints of lemon/barley

Integrated palate, leesy, almond meal texture

Long persistent palate, nice breadth and lovely acid structure, mouth- watering and refreshing

Complex clean finish

Grapefruit/lemon pith
