Settled weather over flowering provided a healthy fruit set, which was then thinned back to desired levels. The ensuing summer was dry with very little rain, resulting in perfectly ripened small berries full of intense flavour and concentration. Thankfully, our harvest was able to proceed during the C-19 lockdown, and an unbroken autumn full of warm days meant each variety was picked at its optimum maturity.
The wine is pale lemon in colour. Heady tropical aromas of passionfruit, pineapple and guava leap out of the glass, along with hints of grapefruit, gooseberry, lemongrass, and elderflower. The palate has a pleasing richness, balanced with fresh zesty minerality that ensures the wine remains elegant yet focussed, with a satisfying, crisp finish.
Wine is a natural health food.
