The limy acidity seamed through the fruit flavours gives food-friendly freshness and promises a few years’ ageing potential.

Grapes were handpicked early morning and come from 4 different blocks. Grapes were picked on 22 to 24 balling. After grapes were hand sorted and destemmed it was only lightly pressed to ensure good quality juice for fermentation.  Juice settled for 72 hours with a settling enzyme before it was racked. Different yeasts were used to enhance the flavour profile of the wine.  Fermentation took about 18 days at 16 – 22 ˚C.  After fermentation a 3rd of the volume were oak matured in 300 L second fill French oak barrels, 3rd for 6 months on staves and a 3rd were left un-wooded. After oak maturation components were blended together, fined and bottled.
