  • This is generous, opulent and flavoursome; aromas of yellow peach, pineapple, vanilla and toasted almond lead to a succulent palate that is rounded and creamy. The wine shows excellent fruit intensity with silky texture, finishing long and smooth.

    On receival at the winery the fruit was gently processed to the press. The juice was then pressed off skins and sent to tank for settling. Once clarified the juice was racked off juice lees and inoculated with a specially selected yeast strain chosen for its ability to accentuate varietal character. The ensuing ferment was cool and clean and arrested when 5.0g/L of residual sugar remained to balance acidity.
