Tasting Notes: Medium Yellow/Gold in colour. Intense ripe aromas of Feijoa and Nashi Pear with wafts of summer breeze suffused with jasmine and citrus blossom. A ripe, round, fruity palate of lush guava, white peach pulp with a sweet basil and green apple tannin finish.
Winemaking Notes: Handpicked on the 10th of March. Crushed and pressed to stainless steel tanks. Clear juice was racked off juice solids and fermented with selected yeasts to enhance varietal characters. Bottle after 2 months in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and vibrant varietal character.
Viticultural Notes: 2020 is characterised as a long cool season. Winter rains continued into spring giving full verdent vine canopies to set up the growing season. Flowering conditions were less than idea leading to reduced fruit yields. The season progressed with very mild conditions frequently without prolonged sunlight. These mild conditions and cool nights etended the ripening period for grapes well into Autumn and allowed for the evolution of cool climate characters retaining vibrant natural acidity.
