In the Vineyard
Grapes were sourced from a cross-section of regions selected for optimal expression of each variety. Vineyard tactics included pruning to two-bud spurs, shoot removal, bunch thinning and canopy management for best ripeness and quality.
The juice from the grapes was cold settled for two days after pressing. The clean juice was fermented at temperatures ranging from 14 to 16°C to ensure the best aromatic expression of each variety. After fermentation, the varieties were blended to allow the specific varietal character of each component to enhance the complexity and harmony of the wine.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes
- On the nose: Tropical pineapple-led fruit and peach with spicy undertones, and a lingering floral aroma of honeysuckle and frangipani.
- Palate: This medium-sweet wine has a delicate freshness and a juicy fruit core, embracing characters of peach and apricot with hints of cinnamon and honey. Tantalising vibrancy and smooth, with an uncloying tangerine finish.
Ageing potential: Ready to drink now, this wine will develop intriguing complexity over another two to three years.
