This is once again, from the ultra cool Piccadilly Valley in the Adelaide Hills. The extremely low yields from this vineyard ensure intense wines even in cool seasons such as 2017.
Perfumed and intense, the Piccadilly 2017 shows primary flavours of nectarine, peach and a hint of grapefruit against a backdrop of hazelnut complexity. This is refined yet exuberant with lively flavours and bright natural acidity on a fresh, crisp, pristine finish of impressive length. Delicious!
