Bright pale straw in colour. Fresh fruit blossom aromas with hints of stone fruit and brioche. The palate displays subtle stone fruit flavours with a delicate complexity and balance of integrated French oak and sorbet like nature acidity on the finish. Will benefit with 5 – 7 years ageing.
Whole bunch pressed with an extraction of 580 Lt per tonne. The juice was left to cold settle @ 4 Degrees for 24 hours before being racked and warmed into 100% new French oak hogsheads. Fermentation was completed by natural (wild) yeast with the barrels topped and left on gross yeast lees for 12 months. Racked out of barrel and held cold for 2 months prior to filtration and bottling.
