Closely cropped and fastidiously managed, the Hewitson source vineyard yields magnificent fruit. Hand picked grapes are low in pH with fantastic acidity and complete flavour development. Following fermentations, Gun Metal is treated to a settling and cold filtration before bottling.
Bright, light straw in colour. Lemon blossom perfumes, granny smith apple and lime zest on the bouquet. A wine of great intensity, bursting with fresh citrus flavours of limes and lemon, finishing with a talcum powder minerality characteristic of first growth Eden Valley Riesling.
