This wine hails from a dry-farmed estate vineyard planted with 40-year-old-plus vines. An iconic place owned by the Smith brothers, this adds to their well-earned fame and reputation for elegant, interesting wines with a sense of place. Lemon and lime provide crisp, clean freshness, buoyed by apple, almond and pear, a light acidity always nearby.
