Tasting Notes

When to drink
Enjoy now or cellar for 1-2 years
On the nose
Preserved lemons, lime curd and white peach provide the aroma framework for this wine. There’s an intriguing savoury complexity also. White florals, lime, ginger, oatmeal, pastry and brioche notes all chime in to add extra dimension.
On the palate
The palate is juicy, chewy and textured.
Product Notes
The fruit was a whole bunch pressed with no sulphur addition at harvest, and the juice was oxidatively handled. Minimal settling follows before each batch is transferred to French oak barriques and puncheons (32% new) for wild fermentation and natural malolactic fermentation.
