Tasting Notes

WINEMAKER NOTES
Pale gold in colour. Aromas of pear, apple and honeydew are complemented by lifted florals. Medium bodied palate with lovely texture and complexity from subtle oak and lees. Pear, citrus, melon combines with subtle ginger spice. Well balanced acidity providing freshness and length.

VINEYARD
Hand picked from our Tellurian vineyard growing in Cambrian soils formed over 500 million-years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield.

VINTAGE
2016 was ideal for intense, full flavoured fruit retaining wonderful natural acidity. While the entire season was relatively dry, good shoot growth and flowering was followed by even fruit set with lower yields in all varieties. Above av. summer night temperatures encouraged earliest vintage to date.

WINEMAKING
Hand picked grapes were harvested early in the morning then pressed direct to tank. Juice was settled for 24 hours and racked while still cloudy and inoculated with a select strain of yeast before being transferred to seasoned French oak barrels for fermentation. Wine was aged on lees without stirring for 6 months, before stabilised, filtered and bottled.
