Tasting Notes

WINEMAKER NOTES
Pale straw in colour. Fresh aromas of lime, slate, white flower and talc. The palate carries zesty citrus flavour with light bodied, crisp, cleansing acidity, linear, tight finish.

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
Spring rainfall and cooler conditions of 2017 were ideal for flowering and fruit set. Warm gentle summer with no extreme heat days meant a slower ripening season with harvest a month later than 2016. 

WINEMAKING
Grapes were destemmed and pressed to a stainless steel tank for overnight settling. The juice was racked and inoculated with a select strain of yeast and fermented in stainless steel. The wine remained on yeast lees in tank for three months before being stabilised, filtered and bottled.
