The Galaxidia vineyard was planted in 1998 after purchasing a neighbouring property. The vineyard is a north facing slope and typically produces wines of fragrance and intensity. This small bottling of a 100 dozen is from the best block on this vineyard. The nose shows lifted red fruits and sweet exotic spice. The palate is plush and full bodied but shows restraint and freshness. Flavours of dark plum and mulberry are beautifully balanced by a savoury, earthy richness.
"This single, Seaview sub-region plot has a dark-fruit nose with blood-plum, espresso and blackberry aromas, leading to a dense but fine array of tannins that carry a long and plush, blackberry finish. Stunning concentration and poise, really holding the finish in style. Drink or hold. 96 points"
