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 were cut short due to a late frost event which resulted in a considerable reduction in yield.
Brilliant pale straw with green flecks.
Lifted aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and musk.
Intense flavours of lime and orange 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.
