Winemaker's Notes
"Very approachable as a young wine, yet still built for a long life in the cellar. The palate is impeccably balanced with its strong, citrus characters and a crisp acid structure which leaves the wine with a clean finish."

Technical Notes
"The vines in the HVD vineyard were planted in 1908 and form the “Sign Post Block”. The vineyard lies between two small creeks that are fed from a spring in the Brokenback range. The vines are rarely stressed and their roots are almost continuously in water. The soil is a light sandy loam going down into coarse river sand. The grapes were hand picked then lightly crushed before a relatively cool fermentation in stainless steel. After a short period on gross lees, the wine was racked and left to mature in stainless steel for a further ve months before bottling in early July, 2010. 11% alc."
James Halliday
"95 pts ... The HVD vineyard was planted in 1908. Despite a touch of spritz, this has started down its development path with the first hint of honey joining the lively, tangy, lemon/lemongrass flavours, the acidity crisp and reassuring. Drink through 2030."
