Grapes are pressed immediately on arrival at the winery with the juice left to settle in tank over night before being racked to fermentation vessel. The wine is fermented in stainless tanks at low temperatures (less than 15°C) over 8 weeks with minimal intervention to obtain the purest expression of the pristine, organically grown fruit from the Isolation Ridge vineyard. The wine is then left on its lees for six months. A small parcel of Riesling was fermented and aged in (neutral) oak for 10 months where it attains lovely complex textural components and enhances the opulence of the wine.
The wine leaps out of the glass with perfumed white citrus florals, spice and grapefruit. A real generosity and poise on the palate. Ripe juicy limes upfront, with a crisp acidity that carries the fruit all the way into a long saline, mineral finish. Elegant yet powerful, it builds layers in the mouth as the wine opens up.
Wonderful pairing with seared tuna, shellfish and crustaceans.
