Overview

The 2020 growing season began very warmly experiencing extreme heat in the early days. The temperatures dropped during January and February and then developed into a typical mid-day and cool evening pattern which allowed for great fruit ripening and ensured great acid retention.

The parcels were picked at ultimate ripeness. The clarified juice was fermented cool in stainless steel tanks to retain fruit aromas. The resulting wines were then blended and stabilised before bottling.

Tasting Notes

Aroma

Lifted notes of passionfruit, gooseberry and citrus.

Palate

The elegent yet intense wine displays tropical passionfruit and grapefruit flavours with hints of nettle. The mid-palate shows lovely texture before a long crisp zesty finish.
