Description

Pale straw with green hues. White flowers, green skinned nectarine, honeydew, flecks of cordite, preserved lemon, yeast lees. Complex, changing and intriguing. The palate is so polished and long. Elegant, fine, complete, tight, mouth-watering. Integration of flavours, seamless citrus acid line to a logical conclusion of persistence and saline tang. Refreshing, precise and requiring time. Demands time in the cellar.

Winemaking Notes

All grapes were hand harvested and sorted prior to whole bunch pressing directly to French oak puncheons for natural fermentation. 30% of the barrels were new. Post-fermentation, the wine was matured on its fermentation lees for 10 months in barrels followed by a further 6 months in tank prior to bottling after a single filtration.
