Vinification

The juice from the grapes was cold settled for two days after pressing.
The clean juice was fermented at temperatures ranging from 14 to
16°C to ensure the best aromatic expression of each variety. After
fermentation, the varieties were blended to allow the specific varietal
character of each component to enhance the complexity and harmony
of the wine.

Tasting Notes

On the nose: Tropical pineapple-led fruit and peach with spicyundertones, and a lingering floral aroma of honeysuckle and
frangipani.

Palate: This medium-sweet wine has a delicate freshness and a
juicy fruit core, embracing characters of peach and apricot with hints
of cinnamon and honey. Tantalising vibrancy and smooth, with an
uncloying tangerine finish.

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.
