Concentrated nose filled with nectarines, preserved peach, wildflower honey, cinnamon and candied lime. Great weight and texture on the palate, good acidity, with a long flavourful finish. Serve slightly chilled.
Sourced from low-yielding vines, the grapes were de-stemmed, and gently pressed. After cold settling, clear juice was racked and fermented slowly in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak barrels. Aged post-fermentation in stainless steel and barrel without malo-lactic fermentation, kept on light lees for an extended period until final filtration and bottling.
