Overview

Light-straw in colour. A medium bodied wine with complex aromas of spiced pear, nougat, toasted almonds and quince aromas, a creamy texture and plenty of ripe fruit flavours which persist on a long, full finish. Serve slightly chilled and is an ideal companion to pork and chicken dishes or enjoy with pâtés and hard cheeses.

REVIEW - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"Grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, and the finishes wine was matured on lees for two months. The wine offers elegance as well as mouth-filling flavours, showing lifted aromas of poached pear, stone fruit, lemon peel and floral on the nose, followed by a beautifully weighted palate that is ripe and silky. Fruit expressive and immediately appealing, this is a great all-rounder." - 93 points

Description

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked and whole cluster pressed. After 24 hours of light settling, the juice was racked off the heavy lees. A selected, aromatic yeast strain and cold fermentation temperature were used to preserve the fruit’s inherent, delicate flavours. After fermentation, the wine was aged on yeast lees for 2 months to aid the creamy texture. Bottling date 12th July 2016.
