Viticulture
Sourced from 2 vineyards on the Estate planted in 1991 (15 years old in year of vintage) situated on alluvial Dundee soils. Crop thinning at runing and at veraison. 5 Seperate picking stages at optimum ripenus.

Wine Making
Picked by hand, partial whole bunch pressing and immediate transfer of free run to 300 liter French Oak Hogsheads. 60 % new barrels, 40% second fill. Fermentation in oak, partial un-innoculated ermentation. Partial malo-lactic fermentation. Maturation in oak for 12 months with occasional lees stirring before bottling.

Tasting Notes
Very youthful, vivid and with a brilliant bright platinum colour and pronounced green hue. Complex nose with citrus fruit, green apple & cream flavours, the nose becomes creamy & nutty with delicious ouquet of marzipan, halva & oatmeal.

On the palate the wine is full bodied & generous, but still balanced by crisp acidity. There is ripe tropical fruit & creaminess balanced by a pure minerality typical of the variety. The wine has a long, very pleasant lingering finish indicating the richness and persistence of the vintage.

Food Matching
Grilled fish, white and red meat.
