24 year-old vines, barrel fermentation and maturation produce distinctive notes of yellow apple alongside green melon and lime on the nose. This wine is beautifully structured on the palate, bursting with fresh yellow and white fruit flavours and a subtle yet distinctive finish.
Hand picked in the early morning. The grapes were sorted, de-stemmed and crushed. Cold soaking and slow fermentation took place at 13-15 °C to enhance flavours and colour. Fermented in 3rd & 4th fill barrels for about three weeks with commercial as well as wild yeast. The wine was left on the thick lees for 6 months & matured in barrel for 8 months.
Perfect with creamy chicken and seafood dishes
Can be enjoyed now or cellar at a cool temperature.
