Intensely perfumed nectarine with a hint of honey.
Balanced stone fruit with nuts, fresh citrus & creamed honey. Matured in French oak for 11 months, adding texture and complexity.
The 2017 harvest was relatively late compared to preceding vintages, so picking was during the mild and sunny Autumn. The berries show intense perfume and great flavour which has produced exceptional balanced wines.
The fruit was perfectly ripe, following careful handpicking, the grapes were delivered to the winery, destemmed, and whole bunch pressed. Racked to barrel for a wild yeast fermentation in French oak with regular lees stirring. Partial malolactic fermentation was completed in spring. The wine had 11 months in French oak barriques.
