Appearance: Golden straw.

Aromas: Lifted aromas of citrus and honey.

Flavours: A deliciously rich palate filled with stonefruit and citrus giving way to a crisp acidic backbone culminating in a refreshingly pleasant finish.

The Nectar is made from Coonawarra Riesling from the Wilgha vineyard. The summer of 2015 was a classic with warm days and cool nights due to the upwelling of deep cold water off the coast of the region. This allowed the fruit to ripen and develop intense fruit flavours. Hanging on the vines until late in the season, the harvest was delayed until the botrytis had crept its way throughout the entire vineyard. 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 to ensure the integrity of the wine. Gentle pressing and a long cool fermentation retained the vibrant freshness of flavours before the wine was clarified, stabilised and bottled.
