The grapes were machine-harvested in early–mid April. The fruit then underwent a period of skin contact, without any sulphur additions, before crushing and gentle pressing. The juice then underwent slow, cool fermentation to retain the very distinctive varietal character using a variety of selected yeasts. Fermentation was stopped to leave an amount of residual grape sugar in the wine.

Aroma and Palate

  • This wine displays an aromatic array starting with lime then cinnamon and ginger beer-like spice.
  • This leads into a honeyed complexity with honeysuckle blossom highlights.
  • The palate also displays citrus flavours along with those of white fleshed nectarine and further complex honey notes.
  • The intense display of aromatics and flavour is balanced by juicy acidity to complete this wine.

Cellaring & food matching

  • Beautifully drinkable upon release, this wine will develop honeyed complexity with some aging.
  • The spice flavours in this wine will suit a variety of Asian cuisines such as sweet and sour dishes, spicy Thai chicken and pork, or Sushi and Sashimi.
  • It will also work with less conventional options such as guacamole or creamy pasta dishes.
