It exhibits fine varietal aromatics with nuances of white peach, melon, citrus and underlying cashew nut. This is complemented by partial malolactic fermentation in hand selected French oak barriques resulting in a complex fine mid-palate flavour with underlying minerality, and a long balanced finish.

About Brangayne of Orange: The "Brangayne" and "Ynys Witrin" vineyards lie on the north eastern slopes of the extinct volcano Mount Canobolas, near Orange in New South Wales, one of the highest and coldest grape districts in Australia. Often under snow in winter and mild in summer, the cold climate offers ideal conditions for the production of premium grapes, combining generous fruit flavour, acid and length in wines of intensity and elegance. The long ripening period and the deep, rich volcanic soil, position Brangayne among the few vineyards in Australia capable of producing distinctive cold climate wines of high calibre. Brangayne came into the Hoskins Family in the 1930s, and for sixty years, Edgar and Winsome Hoskins and later Don and Pamela Hoskins grew apples, pears, peaches and cherries on the property. Then, in 1994, the fruit trees were replaced by wine grapes. The vineyard today is managed by David Hoskins.
