    Winemaker's Notes

  • Colour: Pale straw colour with a green tint.

  • Bouquet: An inviting and creamy aroma with fresh peach, grapefruit and melon combining with a touch of oak to add to the complexity.

  • Palate: Hints of nutty and creamy barrel ferment characters add to the picture and the finish is long, fruity and zesty, balanced with some minerality and great acidity. Tropical fruits flow onto the palate morphing into peach and melon flavours in the mouth.

  • Cellaring: Drink now or cellar short term

  • Winemaking Details
    Crushed immediately after picking with minimal skin contact of 1 - 3 hours in the press. The majority of the blend is cold fermented in stainless steel for 8-10 days at 12-15C, with selected yeast and some lees maturation. A small parcel of the wine, approximately 25%, is aged in 1 year old French oak to soften the palate and malolactic fermentation induced to add further complexity to the style.

  • Alc/Vol: 13.00
