The nose is packed with rich flavours of marmalade, cumquat ripe peach and orange butter. The palate is unctuous with the cumquat character coming through and layers of yellow peach, butterscotch and a hint of green apple. The finish has a touch of lemon acidity with a lingering orange rind character.
Late harvesting from three vineyards took place by hand in small volumes when fruit flavours and the Botrytis cinerea infections were at an optimal point.
The fruit was crushed before receiving a small amount of skin contact andseparated via basket pressing. Fermentation occurs in small tanks using neutral yeast. The fermentation stopped naturally.
Grapes: Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillion and Pinot Gris
