Richly fragrant – floral with a touch of strawberry spice.

A full palate of strawberries & cream with an earthiness on the finish.
Budburst was early this year which resulted in flowering with good fruit set. The warm ripening period saw harvest commence a week sooner than normal. Yields were reported as high – average with fine acidity retention and excellent balanced flavours.
The hand-harvested fruit was whole bunch pressed very gradually over 5 hours to extract a beautiful pale red juice with low tannin. It was settled overnight, and the clear juice was fermented cool in stainless steel tank to dryness. Bottled in late June, 2019.
