Winemakers Notes

This years Cloudwalker focuses on a single vineyard south of the village sited on the edge of the Dry River. A rock strewn stream-bed that seldom carries water but finds its course high in the calcified mountain to the east. The grapes are Pinot Gris & Riesling, just under half has been fermented with skins and seeds to build texture and refreshing pith into the wine. The wine is wild and untouched, with nothing added or taken away.


Tasting Note

Aroms of dried mango and earl grey with a touch of lemon zest. The palate balances textural weight with a dry crunch and a freshness tempered with bitters.
