Lifted aromas of passionfruit, white peach and pear drops with hints of lemongrass
and citrus rind.
Juicy palate, passionfruit, and citrus on the palate with subtle cut grass and delicate
lemon blossom notes, well integrated natural acid with a crisp mineral finish.
A mild 2020 spring with reasonable rainfall provided excellent growing conditions.
A wet November followed by a warm and dry December and January set the vines
for up for a regular season. However wet and humid conditions in February created
an unusual vintage with extreme weather conditions. As a result, the 2021 vintage
required extra work and attention to detail in the vineyard. The final wines show
incredible flavour at lower baumes with bright natural acidity. Great fruit purity and
The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were each picked at optimum ripeness during
the coolest period of the night to help retain the vibrant primary fruit flavours.
The fruit was transported directly to the winery post-harvest, crushed and pressed to
tank and allowed to cold settle. 48 - 72 hours later the juice was cleanly racked and
inoculated with VL3 yeast to maximise varietal characteristics. The ferment
temperature was kept at around 13-14 °C, this helps retain the fresh primary fruit
aromas while also developing a complex fermentation bouquet and increased palate
weight and texture. Post Ferment the wine was fined with traditional additives, cold
stabilized and bottled.
