Grant Burge Lily Farm Frontignac CONFIRM VINTAGE

Frontignac Barossa South Australia
Lily Farm is the vineyard in front of Grant's house near Tanunda, planted to vine some thirty years ago. Frontignac is a wine that typifies the fruit from which it is made, showing a distinctively, pleasant grape flavour. Frontignanc is unique amongst varietals in that the wine actually tastes and smells of ripe, luscious grapes. Grant Burge make a style of Frontignac that's more generous and engaging, the sweetness of fruit is matched by an adults only complexity, multi dimensional with vivid aromatics and layers of fruit.
The mature Lily Farm vines yield Frontignac grapes with heightened flavour profiles and varietal character. Grapes are hand picked at healthy baumes, just short of their ripening potential, capturing a good measure of natural acidity to balance the sweetness of fruit. Following the crush, only the free run juices are retained to ensure a wine of maximum freshness and delicacy. Juices are cold settled and chilled over forty eight hours prior to racking and inoculation. Fermentations are stopped and yeast lees removed when the wine has reached the desired level of sweetness. This achieves a long crisp finish, which Grant Burge believes is the most important feature of the style.
Pale gold in colour. Striking varietal aromas of musk and blossoms, citrus and rosewater. This delicate wine is slightly sweet, offering fruity flavours of lemon and limes, the palate is mouthfilling with delicious citrus sweetness, balanced perfectly by fine natural acidity and a cleansing, refreshing finish which makes it extremely more-ish.
