Description

Pale salmon-rose with a subtle pink hue
“Aromas of pink grapefruit, red apple tart pastry and freshly baked scones dominate over flashes of poached berries and summer pudding.
The palate is creamy, textural and round and flavored with red berry fruit, cream and notes of biscuit. The bright acidity snaps the wine into line adding both persistence and refreshment.”

Winemaking Notes

Handpicked and chilled overnight before whole bunch pressing to tank for a natural fermentation. 20% was fermented in old oak to add complexity. Once through primary fermentation, the tank and oak portions were blended and encouraged to go through malolactic conversion. The finished base wine was then sent to tirage for its secondary fermentation in bottle, where it remained sur lie for 2 years prior to disgorging in September 2019, with a dosage of 7g/L.

Growing Conditions

Sourced from the north facing Willowlake vineyard in the red volcanic soils of Glaysdale.
