This vintage was characterised by a very long dry spell with higher daytime and overnight temperatures. It was a much higher yield than previous years but as always fruit quality was exceptional. We leaf plucked and did minimal shoot thinning on both eastern and western sides of the rows two weeks prior to harvest in order to gain more uniform ripening.
After hand picking, the grapes were pressed then settled overnight before racking the clear juice. It was then yeasted and fermented at 16oC for two weeks. Left on lees until bottling. No animal products used in processing.
This wine has vibrant citrus and floral notes before intense honey dew melon, ripe gooseberry and a long refreshing finish. This zesty full bodied wine may be consumed young but will continue to develop with careful cellaring. It matches well with cheese, seafood, Asian dishes and with great company
