Vinification

Each vineyard block was harvested in at least two picks, allowing us to separate the grape components, based on vine age and soil variations. The grapes were gently pressed before fermentation in stainless steel tanks with 6% going into older French oak barriques, with yeast selected specifically to enhance the wines natural aromatic characters.

Post fermentation the wines were allowed to rest on the yeast lees before blending. Only the wines with outstanding varietal characters and great intensity on the palate were chosen for the final blend.

Service Temp 10-12 ºC
Food & Wine Pairing Fresh salads with tomatoes and feta cheese, Thai green curry, Vietnamese stewed fish with herbs

Lovely passion fruit, lime and fragrant lemongrass leap from the glass, whilst the palate is crisp and focussed with a juicy texture. The barrel fermented component helps to highlight the wines chalky minerality. In terms of flavours this wine has lovely complexity with strong citrus and passion fruit characters balanced by some herbal notes and tropical fruit.
