Pale straw in colour, slightly turbid.
Aromas of white stone fruit with lime leaf citrus, fresh picked flowers and a note of star of anise spice.
The palate is lushly fruited and juicy with citrus peel and stone fruit flesh flavors cascading their way along a vibrant line of acidity. The fruits are complemented by a positive tannin line which provides texture and complexity.
Destemmed to fermenter for natural fermentation. Fermenters were sealed and the wine was held on skins for a period of two months with no intervention. The must was then pressed directly to old French oak casks for settling for an additional two months before being racked and bottled with no filtration, only a small Sulphur addition has been made to this wine.
This wine was sourced from Oakridge’s north facing Willowlake Vineyard, sited in the red volcanic soils of Gladysdale.
