The 2009 vintage shows opulent, tropical fruit on the nose. Ripe pear, red apple and papaya are laced with subtle fragrance and honeysuckle florals. Palate texture is integrated and well rounded, with a lingering silkiness that shows off the fruit. There is a crisp acidity, balancing the wine well and finishing cleanly after a long finish.

The harvesting was done extremely carefully so as not to damage any fruit. The grapes were harvested at approximately 21.5 degrees balling. Picked into small lug boxes, the grapes were transported to a well ventilated shed to where they were carefully laid out on racks lined with straw to dry. It took about four weeks for the grapes to dry out to a ‘raisiny’ state, losing up to 75% of their moisture. They were then pressed and allowed to ferment in stainless steel tanks. fermentation lasted six months, before the wine was filtered and bottled.
