PALATE

Poached pear & white blossom, folds into a delicate palate. A beautifully balanced wine with maximum fruit weight, it’s freshness remains all the way to the dry finish.

VINTAGE

Rain events did create moderate disease pressure during the growing season but were often followed by prolonged periods of mild & dry weather so there was little disease occurrence. Temperatures were generally moderate with higher-than-average low temperatures but no hot weather & certainly no heat waves. We meandered through harvest at a gentle pace.

WINEMAKING

Whole bunch pressed directly to old French oak barrels for fermentation & matured on lees in barrel with occasional stirring for greater textural complexity. It was racked, stabilised & prepared for bottling in late June 2021.
