Winemaker's Notes

All the grapes of this wine were estate grown on both alluvial flat and sunny north-facing slopes. After fermentation for 3 weeks the wine was racked and kept on light lees until bottling. We bottled this early to keep maximum freshness. Burst of sweet lime zest characters. Powerful and concentrated on the palate. Aromas of passionfruit and feijoa under pinned with fresh, lemon and sensational lime characters. Flavors of pink grapefruit, melon and passionfruit, with a long and succulent finish make it very appealing.
