Food Suggestions

Enjoy this wine on its own or with a variety of salads, white meat dishes and fresh seafood. It is best enjoyed chilled.


In The Vineyard

The vintage was dry, warm and early for the most part, with smaller berries and lower yields. Some varieties set inconsistently - even within the same bunch or cluster. The significantly smaller harvest coupled with the dry conditions induced earlier ripening. Reds look very good whereas the whites were challenging due to lower acids, but the winemaking team were up to the challenge and produced a solid performance.


In The Cellar

Maturation: None
