Tasting Note: Rich grapefruit yellow colour. Complex seed spice, manuka honey, baked quince and spicy clove on the nose. An opulent, creamy and honeyed texture in the mouth. Peaches and nectarines combine with more complex flavours of soft ginger spice and pithy grapefruit phenolics. A subtle, balanced acidity and a long finish with hints of creamy oyster and lemon zest.
Winemaking Notes: Grapes were hand-picked from the Eastern section of the vineyard, which due to lighter, less vigorous soils and more wind exposure produces smaller, riper berries and lower yields. De-stemmed without crushing, fermented at cool temperatures with indigenous yeast. 16 days on skins, fermentation finished off skins to ensure minimal oxidation. Extensive lees contact over six months to develop the characteristic texture before being prepared for bottling with a minimal sulphur addition. Unfined, unfiltered.
