By picking late in the season, following a coolish summer, we were able to achieve splendid flavour development with good natural acidity in this naturally early ripening variety. A proportion of the wine was matured in old barrels, giving extra mouth feel and complexity without adding oak flavour.
The striking aroma and flavour are reminiscent of Turkish musk, quince paste, candied pineapple, guava and tropical spices. The wine is big boned, mouth filling and unctuous. Its richness is balanced by crisp acidity and a lingering aftertaste of freshly crushed root ginger.
