Winemaker's Notes

We’ve dubbed this wine Hedon, a playful nod to the philosophy of Hedonism, that values pleasure above all. For our 2017 Hedon we’ve selected barrels that push the boundaries of opulence; with scented notes of perfume, white flowers and ripe fruit, nectarine, apricot and passion fruit. The wines have been aged for 18 months, sur lies, to drive the silky mouthfeel and develop the subtle hints of vanillin, toasted almond and brioche that accent the rich and long-lasting core of sweet stone fruit that carries through on the finish.
