Expressive yet refined with generous stone and citrus fruits and hints of vanilla and apple cake spice notes. A fresh but textural mid-palate with great balance and length.
Luscious and fleshy white peach, honeydew and Crème Brûlée oak notes.
It has been noted as one of the best growing seasons in recent years, with a wet winter allowing the vines to produce a healthy canopy, and mild temperatures and periodic rain providing good growing conditions. Very little heat stress was experienced across the growing regions. A cool and dry summer sustained even ripening and allowed viticulturists and winemakers to harvest grapes at their optimum fruit expression.
Fruit was harvested in the night to ensure it was as cool as possible when picked before being crushed and de-stemmed and pressed to a settling tank. The juice was clarified and inoculated with selected yeast to express fruit characters. A number of parcels were fermented on oak, some underwent MLF and others matured on oak all with extended lees contact to build depth and to give a range of options when blending.
Alc/Vol: 13%, pH:3.34, Acidity: 6.0.
