Tasting Notes

The Verdelho gets picked in two batches, with the early pick displaying fresher citrus and green apple notes and the later pick showing white stone fruits. A subtle floral nose with a hint of spice.

Winemakers Notes

The 2018 vintage was hot and dry and produced outstanding quality fruit from all varieties. This wine was handled without any oxidation and fermented using aromatic yeast. The wine had minimal lees contact and no oak handling. It was bottled early to seal in the fresh fruit characters of the wine.

Alcohol - 13 %                  pH- 3.23                  TA – 6.6 g/l
