Vinification

The grapes were crushed then pressed, and the juice cold settled

for two days, with juice extraction averaging 620 litres per ton.
Fermentation took place at 14–16°C. Following fermentation,
the varieties were blended allowing the varietal character of
each one to enhance the complexity and depth of the blend. The
wine was left on the fine lees for complexity and integration.

Tasting Notes

Lively green with straw tinge

On the nose: Tropical fruit and citrus aromas.

Palate: Vibrant citrus infused with some pear drop sweetness. A
hint of honeysuckle, finishing with a balanced elegance.

Vineyards

Grapes were sourced from a cross-section of regions selected
for optimal expression of each variety. Vineyard tactics included
pruning to two-bud spurs, shoot removal, bunch thinning and
canopy management for best ripeness and quality
