A small portion of the wine was fermented with French oak to add weight and complexity to the palate, and the balance in tank with a selection of different yeast and at different temperatures to add interest while ensuring that varietal aromas were retained. After a few months on lees the wine was assembled. Gently perfumed, the nose is a subtle blend of apricot, mineral and orange blossom. The palate is rich and intensely flavoured with apricot, sweet citrus, and lemon meringue. A powerful and succulent wine with great length.
