Tasting Notes - This elegantly crafted dry wine is made in a very natural way. Fresh flavours of melon, pineapple and lime are accompanied with smooth hints of almonds and brioche and finishes with a light crisp minerality.
Aroma Profile - Green sweet melon, rich citrus, lime & perfume greets you on the nose while hints of nuttyness on the palate ends in a crisp fresh finish.
Viticulture - The vineyards are meticulously cared for by hand. The crop is reduced to ensure maximum quality. Organic and biodynamic practises are employed by not using any pesticides, herbicides or chemical spray. 100% estate grown.
Vinification - Grapes were whole bunch pressed and the wine was made in a very natural way with no commercial yeast, enzymes or fining agents being used. Fermentation lasted 10 -14 days in French oak barrels with regular battonage before racking. It is not filtered or cold stabilized and may therefore in time show harmless sediment. The wine was aged for 11 months in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels.
The wine can be enjoyed now, but will improve over the next 5 years.
