Tasting Notes:

This wine has a stunning vibrant golden hue. The nose displays stunning complexity with fruit notes of ripe quince and baked apples, hints of marzipan and toasted brioche and an underlying herbal note of nettles. The wine is full and rich as it passes onto the palate with a rich creaminess on the mid-palate leading to a long finish of stunning balance.

The vines cropped between 7 and 12.0 tons per hectare. The grapes were hand-picked at optimal flavour ripeness at sugars between 22.5 and 23.5 brix and acidities of 6 g/l to 8.5 g/l.

The grapes were de-stemmed and crushed and pressed immediately in our inert press. The press juice and free run juice were kept separate and settled overnight, before the clean juice was racked off. Only the free run juice from the best blocks. The juice was then inoculated and sent to barrel for fermentation. 400L barrels for the Sauvignon blanc and 225 L for the Semillon. All the barrels used were French oak of which around 28 % was new.

After fermentation the barrels were topped and left on the lees for 9 months with regular lees stirring. The wine was blended in November, stabilised, filtered and bottled soon after. The wine spent a total of 9 months in barrel. 13 800 bottles were produced.
