Tasting Notes

Stone-fruit aromas dominate the nose with hints of citrus, quince and pine nut. Rich and creamy palate is well balanced, perked up by lively acidity and a long finish. The subtle use of oak uplifts the pure fruity characters.

In the Vineyard

Aspect south-east
Trellis and bush vines

Harvest

Grapes were night harvested and picked by hand to retain flavours. Yield 6.9 tons/ha

Cellar Practices

Grapes were gently crushed and pressed. Wine was cold fermented in tank to allow freshness and fruit, but kept on the lees for 11 months to give a creamy mouth feel. 25% of barrel-fermented wine was blended with the tank fermented portion (75%) to add the wooded dimension.
