The estate grown fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning, preserving the delicate
varietal flavours that define this cool climate, aromatic wine. All fermentation was carried
out in stainless steel, at cool temperatures to preserve the freshness and vibrancy of the fruit.
Excellent growing conditions during spring led to healthy canopies and set the vineyard up
beautifully for the rest of the season. A mild, yet very dry ripening season resulted in
pristine fruit quality with an abundance of flavour intensity.
Brilliant pale gold with green flecks.
Lifted aromas of white flowers, mandarin zest and rose water.
Intense flavours of grapefruit and musk with a sherbety acidity giving freshness and length
to the palate.
Whilst ready to drink now, this wine will gain in complexity over the next five to eight years.
