An elegant wine showing elderflower, green fig and melon on the nose. The wine has a mineral quality that is supported by concentrated fruit and juicy acidity that leaves a lingering aftertaste. This is a complex wine that delivers a beautiful expression of our pristine terroir.

Wine Information

The grapes were given up to 6hrs of skin contact to allow for flavour extraction from the skins before pressing. The juice was handled reductively and cold fermented to protect the delicate thiol characteristics of the grape variety. 5 Months extended lees contact was given to add mid-palate weight to the blend and a 5%-barrel fermented portion was blended for added complexity and texture.
