Vintage
While 2017 had a dry summer with lots of berries and not much juice, 2018 had
enough occasional rain to fill the grapes with juice. The harvests took place under
excellent conditions, delivering good quality crops and bringing 2018 in line with
previous years; with the promise of a very good vintage.


Vineyard
The organic vines are grown using sustainable methods and have been awarded
the Terra Vitis accreditation. As this wine is made without the addition of any sulphur
or additives, the work undertaken in the vineyard is crucial. A precise and meticulous
selection of the plots most suitable for producing this type of wine is undertaken. 90%
of the final result depends on this painstaking work, as the vines must be in perfect
health, with strong, fresh, dense foliage and selecting grapes which have reached
optimal maturity. The window for successful harvesting of the fruit is very narrow, the
balance between acidity and sweetness; and the maturity of the tannins are critical
for this type of wine.


Winemaking
Made without the addition of sulphur or additives. The grapes were immediately
pressed with a cold must settling, in order to encourage the oxide compounds in the
must to stabilise naturally. A short alcoholic fermentation took place at controlled
temperatures, which were restricted to 18°C. The wine was purified by racking, prior
to malolactic fermentation. This was followed by further racking at controlled
temperatures. The wine was bottled relatively early to preserve its full aromatic
character.


Tasting Note
Intense aromas of roses, exotic fruits and citrus notes combine with a delicate hint of
white flowers. The palate is beautifully balanced with a refreshing finish.
