Winemaker's Notes

Aromas of white peach, grapefruit, nutty almond, citrus and nectarine. The wine has underlying richness and complexity with more mealy, toasty oak and funky solids characters from the wild fermentation." The palate is tightly focused and well structured by a citrus backbone and mineral edges. Generous flavours of peach, melon, grapefruit and guava provide richness and underlying sweetness while the oak provides length and structure.
Overall, the palate offers restrained power and elegance, the Heytesbury pedigree.
