WHY DO WE LIKE THIS WINE
Aroma Aromas of citrus fruits, particularly grapefruit and lemon, nectarine and a hint of crème brulé. Flavour Subtle flavours reflective of the aromas – particularly lemon, grapefruit, white peach and elegant oak. Palate The wine has a soft middle palate with good length and a nice acid balance. WINEMAKING Hand-picked fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed into a tank and settled overnight. It was then transferred into French oak baroques and puncheons (10% new, 10% second use, 25% third use, 55% older) and inoculated with a neutral yeast. From May until late winter the barrels were stirred every two weeks until MLF was completed. For this vintage, 80% were prevented from going through MLF to retain acid. The wine was left on yeast lees until November when it was transferred to tank for a further month on lees. Vintage Condition A favorable flowering period and intermittent rainfall in November and December saw good fruit set. Healthy vines produced strong canopies which were able to ripen a particularly even crop load.
