The fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning, preserving the delicate varietal flavours that define this cool climate, aromatic wine. All fermentation was carried out in stainless steel, at cool temperatures to preserve the freshness and vibrancy of the fruit. Upon reaching the ideal balance of sweetness and acidity, the ferment is arrested by chilling. The wine is composed using a careful blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Verdelho, Viognier, Gewürztraminer and Riesling.
A very dry growing season led to one of the earliest vintages on record. As a result of the lack of rainfall, the yields were considerably reduced. There also was an abundance of Eucalyptus tree blossom and this prevented further loss of quality and yield from bird damage. The resulting fruit, was of excellent quality with impressive flavour concentration.
Brilliant pale straw with green flecks.
Lifted aromas of lemon zest, cut grass, rose water and floral notes.
Vibrant sweet passionfruit and musk flavours on the palate, with a fine crisp acidity that runs through to a cleansing finish with a fine spritz.
