Hand-picked from select rows in our cool climate Eden Valley vineyard, the grapes are lightly basket pressed (20% whole bunch) before fermentation takes place in barrel. Regular lees stirring and 8 months maturation in new and seasoned French oak barriques give the wine added complexity.
Delicate, classic aromas of white peach, opulent pear and toasty brioche all leading on to a sumptuous creamy palate of layer upon layer of lemon, citrus fruit and vanilla notes all balanced with a clean, mineral intensity that you always expect from this vineyard.
The seamless balance of understated oak never overstates, and whilst the current youthful exuberance of the fruit gives it an appealing freshness this wine will develop further complexity over the next 5+ years.
