 Technical Notes – 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. The juice  was then settled for 72 hours with a settling enzyme before it was racked. Different yeasts were used to enhance the flavor profile of the wine.  Fermentation took about 18 days at 16 – 22 ˚C.


 Tasting Notes – Pale gold, clear and bright. Has forthcoming fruit, yellow cling peaches lifted by citrus peel, giving a youthful, flavorful effect.  The main appeal is the wine’s balance and fruit vitality, underpinned by lively, vibrant freshness.
