“I remember deciding the fruit was ready to be picked, it was a cool night, pristine conditions to harness the aromatics and flavour of such a delicate variety and the bunches were clean as whistle. After processing, the free run juice coming out of the press was this gorgeous electric green colour.
I have had high hopes for the potential of our 2020 Single Vineyard Palmers Lane since then, the wine in bottle is stunning.” – Richard Done, Winemaker

2022 Halliday Wine Companion Review

Not as successful as its McDonalds Road sibling. Less yielding. Less generous, despite the challenges palpable across the sour seams and lemongrass abstemiousness. And yet… in a few years, this is likely to be the better wine. Alchemy is nigh. Have a little faith.
