"Judi Cullum and Barrie Smith planted vines in their Isolation Ridge vineyard in 1988 with a simple goal: to leave the land in better shape than when they found it and produce some outstanding wines along the way. They have been certified organic since 2009 and continue to work with the land to create biodiversity. Their children, Elizebeth and Hunter Smith, now run production, with Brian Kent as their winemaker since 2010. The vision remains the same, putting the land first and winemaking second."

Tasting Note

"The wine leaps out of the glass with perfumed white citrus florals, spice and grapefruit. A real generosity and poise on the palate. Ripe juicy limes upfront, with a crisp acidity that carries the fruit all the way into a long saline, mineral finish. Elegant yet powerful, it builds layers in the mouth as the wine opens up. Consistent with the now well-established Isolation Ridge style this wine reflects both the low-yielding, dry growing conditions of this site. The balance of pristine fruit flavours and defining acidity result in an exceptional wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared with the confidence as it will continue to develop further complexity for many years to come."
