This wine shows aromas of fresh citrus, lemon &
orange with grapefruit sitting atop. A saline character reminds us of place, with oak derived nuttiness both supporting & elevating the fruit
Generous fruit texture gives way to a balance of oak & acid finish. Focused and framed with mouthwatering acidity & a burst of citrus fruit.
A wet winter & spring impacted fruit set, leading to reduced yields. Yet, 2022 was an outstanding vintage. Warm, dry conditions in summer & autumn provided exceptional growing & ripening conditions. Bird pressure was greatly reduced due to strong flowering of native flora. Remarkable quality
The fruit was harvested on 22nd February & 1st March 2022 at 11.6°
Bottled December 2022
100% barrel fermented, MLF blocked after primary fermentation had completed. Each barrel was stirred every 3 weeks for the duration of the 9 months in barrel (French oak of which 22% was new), to promote autolysis of the yeast cells & give a generous, creamy character. Unfined, & vegan friendly.
