Lifted aromas of grapefruit rind and lemon curd entwined with flint and yellow fruit.

Lime tart, lemon blossom and fresh pine are matched by tightly wound, edgy acidity. The wine is both complex and fresh, in the most modern way.

winemaking

The grapes were whole bunch pressed, without settling, directly to French barriques, 40% of which were new and 60% of which were one year old. The wine underwent wild fermentation and spent 8 months on lees. After fermentation, the barrels were topped and stirred only once before being lightly fined and bottled in December 2019.

Hand-picked, chilled to 5 degrees C, whole-bunch pressed to barriques (40% new) with full solids. A lovely wine, immaculate balance and length, grapefruit/nectarine fruit, freshness the order of the day.
