The settled juices are coolly vinified at 15°C through the action of aromatic strains of yeast to retain bright varietal characteristics. All components are lees stirred throughout several months of barrel maturation, to be assembled into the finished wine in November, judicious use of oak plays a supporting role.
Pale straw hues. Elegant yet powerful, grapefruits and nashi pear, gala apples with underlying hints of nougat and cashew. Medium bodied palate, white fleshed stone fruits and zesty citrus flavours.
