Freshly cut melon with hints of pineapple and a subtle sweet cashew perfume leads to a palate of wonderful complexity, with obvious flavours of tropical fruits and citrus.
Colour

Pale green colour.

Tasting Notes

This wine radiates a wide spectrum of aromas such as fresh limes, tropical guavas and passionfruit, with lashings of creamy marzipan and hints of honeysuckle. The palate is light body, round and velvety with a long lasting zesty spine. 

Food Matching

This wine would be best served with fish and shellfish dishes, cheese platters, and Thai food.

Cellaring

Ready to drink now, but has great potential to age over a few years.

Winemaking

Sourced from 32 years old vines planted on rocky loam soils, located on the Central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The fruit was delivered to the cellar early in the morning, under cool conditions. After a gentle crushing and de-stemming, the grapes were given a cold maceration treatment to maximise aromatic extraction. Immediately after pressing was conducted, and different fractions were kept separated. Juice fractions were left to cold settle for five days, and then racked into stainless fermenters. The juice was inoculated at 16℃ with selected yeast cultures. Fermentation was carried out for a period of 14 days, and then wine was racked off lees and sulphated to stop any yeast activity. After two months, the wine was protein and cold stabilised, and finally filtered in preparation for bottling.
