PALATE

Loads of fine fruit on the palate – nashi pear, pear and citrus – with traces of dried ginger and honey popping through. Refreshing natural acidity brings it together in a clean and lingering finish.

VINTAGE

Despite challenging weather conditions & the possibility of smoke taint, which we were fortunate to avoid. Settled weather throughout March allowed vintage to deliver consistently high quality, low tonnage fruit.

WINEMAKING

Clean, healthy fruit was hand harvested by our team in the cool of the morning & made the short journey to Capella winery. It was refrigerated overnight then whole bunch pressed & settled before fermentation in small parcels in stainless steel tank, ceramic egg and older, neutral oak. There was a short maturation period in the same vessels before blending & bottling in November.
