The juice was handled reductively throughout the winemaking process and fermented very cold in specially designed stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine was kept on the gross lees for three months, blended and finally bottled in June 2006. Winemaker’s comments:The wine shows an abundance of tropical fruit, guava, gooseberry and green fig flavours on the nose that carry through to the palate. The palate is rich and fruity with well-balanced acid while the aftertaste is long and lingering with enough fruit to make you come back for more. The 2006 harvest was one of the easier white harvests we had with no rain during harvest and slow even ripening. Serving temperature: 6-8 °C Food recommendations:Fresh Oysters, goats cheese salad or grilled fresh-water fish. (hide)
