WINEMAKING After a short settling period, the majority of the juice was filled to French oak barrels for fermentation (10% new; 20% 1 year and the remainder 2 & 3 year old). A small parcel of the juice was fermented instainless steel. All parcels were lees stirred for 4 months post fermentation. The wine was then blended, stabilised and fined instainless steel prior to being bottled in July 2015.
TASTING NOTE Nose: Delightful aromas of white peach nectarines, tropical fruit and citrus zest with a hint of cashew. Palate: Fresh flavors of stone fruit combine with cashews and an underlying toastiness from the barrel fermentation to deliver a mouth-filling and enjoyable wine. The wine has a clean, elegant palate, a zesty acid backbone and long, persistent finish.
