Tasting Notes
The 2017 is partridge eye in colour with a slight suggestion of pink from the skins of the grapes. On the nose there is a wonderful, complex array of aromas with citrus, lemon, pear, lychees, and rockmelon with hints of rose petals and spice. The palate has a magnificent textural quality balanced by a suggestion of sweetness and core of crisp acid. This is an ideal food wine to match with delicate dishes or pair with something spicy.
Vineyard Notes
2017 is shaping to be an outstanding vintage with the quality of the fruit reaching the winery in superb condition. The cool temperatures that marked the beginning of Summer were ideal and the warm temperatures when they arrived ripened the grapes nicely. The fruit was hand-harvested and picked at the optimum balance of sweetness and crisp acidity, while maintaining the lovely, fresh fruit flavours.
Winemaker Notes
The free run juice was fermented partially in stainless steel and partially in seasoned oak barrels and inoculated with wild yeast to introduce elements of complexity. Once fermentation was complete the wine was age on lees for six months, partially in seasoned oak and partially in tank to encourage textural complexity. The wine was then filtered and bottled.
