The Original Vineyard has over its history become known for its signature perfumed bouquet and silky, pure palate. This relatively quartz riddled, gently north sloping three acre vineyard produces very fine, spicy, fragrant wine that has high natural acidity and develops beautifully given 6-10 years careful cellaring. As it ages the depth of aroma increases in and the palate becomes increasingly harmonious and is characterized by a sweet fruited, textured flourish. In comparison to the Block Five this wine is more seductive and delicious in its youth whilst still significantly rewarding cellar time.
"The perfume and red fruit delicacy of this vineyard is evident and the subtle, elegant layers of complexity that give this wine it's intrigue are very stimulating for mind and palate alike. Just when you think the aromas have been identified more nuances are revealed. The palate is a delight for its accessible supple and seductive fruit however the savoury, mineral drive of the mid and back palate make it a compelling wine demanding many, many years to reach its peak." - Bindi Wines
