PALATE

A fresh look at this varietal, the luscious palate of apricot & citrus folds into a clean dry finish.

VINTAGE

A perfect late Spring and early Summer resulted in the best flowering and fruit set we have seen for many years. It was followed by a dry and mild ripening period. The berries show intense perfume and great flavour which has produced exceptionally balanced wines.

WINEMAKING

Whole bunch pressed and settled overnight. Clear juice was fermented in stainless steel tank at low temperature to retain the fresh fruit purity of the grapes. Once completely dry, the wine was stabilised and bottled in late June.
