The wine shows a complex nose with ripe stone fruits, rock melon and apricots on the nose.
A rich and generous palate, the fruit flavour continues from the nose and layers of flavours are assisted by the wine's time on lees.
A fresh, crisp and medium-bodied wine, showing good acid balance, and a delicious lingering finish.
The fruit was crushed and cold-settled before starting fermentation. Juice was racked off and yeast added, so the juice could ferment in stainless steel tanks for about eight weeks. A portion of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation on yeast lees and a further 20% was aged on yeast lees for about four months to add complexity and viscosity to the wine. After settling, filtering and stabilising, the wine was then blended and bottled.
