Our late founder Greg Trott, saw the game of cricket as the most noble of pursuits. As a youth, he even built his own concrete pitch at the family farm to emulate his heroes. Trott envisaged wearing the famous baggy green cap of the Australian team - if only to carry the drinks as 12th Man. And if the drinks tray sported our Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, Trott would have been warmly welcomed at any cricket fixture.

Colour

A bright and pale green/gold.

Bouquet

White nectarine and peach sit alongside racier grapefruit, lemon rind and briney notes. Shortbread, roasted nuts and charred oak add another layer.

Palate

Stone fruit is followed by bright lemon juice and flinty notes, while cedary oak and hints of nutmeg complement the fruit characters. Natural ferment, oak and lees aging have combined to produce an elegant and creamy texture.
