Winemaker's Notes

Hand picked, sorted and whole bunch pressed with minimal sulphur.

Barrel fermented and aged on lees with minimal handling, gravity racking and a gentle filtration prior to bottling 12 months later. Minimal MLF. Bottled with a screw cap.

Cool, dry ripening seasons allow us to draw out the palate whilst tightening up the finish.

Nose - characteristically complex nectarine, white peach and citrus with underlying secondary cashew and grain meal.

Palate - firm, yet creamy textural wine overlayed with minerally lemon zest and nectarine.

Very good aging potential.
