Winemaker's Notes:

Gentle processing of the grapes, and the use of only the clearest juice, followed by a cool even fermentation, ensures that the fresh flavours of the variety are preserved in the final wine.

Lemon barley with shades of lime green in color, this wine is aromatic leaping from the glass. Orange blossom, jasmine and lime zest are the main event, backed by a supporting cast of fresh pineapple and lavender. The flavors are all of the citrus spectrum, lime juice, ruby grapefruit and homemade lemonade. The wine has a fine structure and finishes gracefully with mouth watering acidity.
