Clear, bright and pale gold colour. Aromas of orange peel, citrus blossom and blushed apricots. A whiff of cloves and cedar. Firm structure and integrated acidity with flavours of kumquat, green pineapple, underpinned with salinity. Silky texture from extended lees contact and a lingering taste of lightly toasted nuts. A layered and complex wine. Enjoy with Feta or a fruit infused White Rock. Drink now or leave to rest for 2 to 3 years.
The grapes were harvested at an average of 22 degrees balling. 40% of the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks (unwooded) and 60% was fermented in French oak barrels (60% new barrels) of which a third was second fill, a third was 3rd fill barrels and the last third was 4th fill barrels.. The wine was left on the lees for 10 months before blending and bottling.
