Grapes grown in an experimental and sustainable vineyard in Merbein. Harvested in February on a cool dry morning, handpicked into buckets and transported to the winery.
Hand sorted and shovelled into a basket press with some intentional mixing of juice and skins. Cold settled overnight and racked to old French barriques. Barrel fermented for savouriness with some gentle lees stirring to build mid palate creaminess. Matured in oak casks for 5 months, blended and bottled.
Grapefruit and florals with lemon cheesecake and a hint of sea spray. Cracked almonds, citrus and creamy savouriness with a fresh and zesty finish.
