This wine forms part of Clarendon Hills’ ‘1er Cru’ classification.
Fleshier and more structured that its predeceasing vineyards, a violet/lavender centre to raspberries, sarsparilla and creamy blueberry pie. Plush and opulent. Always smooth and creamy in its fruit expression the site really offers a unique balance of approachability and cellar-worthiness. The Blewitt Springs site has a brilliant aged profile that may be mistaken for aged grand-cru burgundy when tasted blind..
|This vineyard was planted in 1925 and is located onthe upper belly of a 45 degree hill, which curves from due-east through south-east, to almost due-south. The vineyard was named after its location within the Blewitt Springs area. The mid-hill positioning and the age of these fine vines makes for a true ‘Premier Cru’.
