which tend to stay cooler and help to retain moisture, beneficial in this warm climate
The grapes were harvested by hand when they reached peak maturity. The fruit was
lightly pressed to extract the finest juices, then a portion of the juice was cold settled
for 48 hours. A proportion of the must was fermented in barrels, while the rest took
place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, maximising the fruit's aromas
and freshness. The wine remained on the lees for three months with pumping over
every 10 days, after the alcoholic fermentation had completed. The wine was gently
fined before bottling.
Aromas of ripe peach are complemented by citrus notes of grapefruit. A smooth
wine full of white fruit, citrus characters, a hint of vanilla and exotic fruits. Cool and
generous on the finish, with a subtle hint blossom.
Enjoy with shellfish, grilled fish with delicate sauces or white meats.
