The avenue leading to these elite NASAA Organic Certified vineyards is called Blue Cutting Road. Grey loam acid soils over sandstone and slate make up the profile, much of the top soil is littered by rock, hinting at just how tough the vines must be to sustain growth and produce quality fruit, not to mention the work of the vigneron to ensure quality. Fruit is hand harvested, each section of the vineyard is treated separately. Grapes are de stemmed and given a gentle crush to burst the berries. The finest quality free runs are chilled, preserving expression of fruit, seeded and treated to a fortnight of vinification. Upon completion, the wine is racked off lees, chilled to 5°C and filtered before bottling.
Pale straw with steely green tinges. Delicately perfumed with a hint of musk and bath powder. Textured palate with hints of orange rind, lime and spice. This wonderfully fragrant, blossom accented wine, has great mouthfeel, balance, and an impeccable lingering finish. Delicate, balanced with crisp natural acidity. The perfect accompaniment to oysters natural, fresh seafood and asian faire.
