Bright golden straw in appearance.
Clean and fresh aromas of dried apricot and honey with citrus notes of grapefruit.
A rich and luscious palate of concentrated stone fruit and citrus flavours. Complex and balanced, the sweetness is complemented by the acidity, culminating in a refreshingly pleasant and lingering finish.
The 2010 'The Nectar' is made from a select combination of our Coonawarra Riesling and balanced with selected parcels of Chardonnay, and Semillon from our Wilgha vineyard. The later part of the 2010 ripening period provided perfect conditions for the natural onset of Botrytis. Creeping its way throughout the entire vineyard and slowly dehydrating the berries, it produced the concentrated, incredibly sweet and flavourful fruit required for making a wine of this style.
The fruit was carefully selected and harvested by hand. Gentle pressing and a long cool fermentation retained the vibrant freshness of flavours, before the wine was clarified, stabilised and bottled.
