(From 2013 Vintage) Bright golden yellow in colour with an aromatic nose of ripe sub-tropical fruit and minerals. The palate is medium bodied and quite dense with a seductively textured mid-palate combining flavours of quince, passionfruit and grenadilla with limey, crisp acidity. Finishes pure and elegant.
Grapes are harvested in early to mid-October. Immediately following harvest, grapes are de-stemmed and undergo a gentle press followed by cold settling at 57˚F for 24-48 hours. Fermented in stainless steel between 61 - 64˚F. No malolactic fermentation.
