  • Tasting Notes


    This wine shows lovely complexity with mix of tangy grassy notes, fig leaf, and peach and nectarine nuances. Brisk acidity with minerality on the palate which is typical of the long hang time in our cool region.

    About The Harvest

    Yield : Between 4 and 9 t/ha

    In The Cellar

    We always look for a hint of tropical ripeness, as well as a crisp clean backbone to carry the wine. To achieve this, grapes are hand-picked from 3 vineyards, approximately 300 miles apart. This gives three unique flavour profiles; all made separately and then blended straight after being drained off the lees.

    After crushing, pumped through mash-cooler straight to press for draining. Free-run juice settled and fermented separately from pressings. Extended lees contact after fermentation for about 8 weeks to increase “creamy” character.

    Juice/wine handled reductively throughout process.
