Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine has a lovely balance of complex savoury characteristics from the natural fermentation on full solids giving richness and midpalate weight to this wine. The oak sits softly around the core fruit profile of stonefruits and grapefruit. High natural acidity contributes line and length and excellent age ability.
Winemaker Notes
The 2018 vintage was hot and dry and produced outstanding quality fruit from all varieties. This wine was fermented in 500 litre French puncheon barrels using high solids, natural yeasts and a moderated ferment temperature to achieve complex savoury aromatics. Post ferment, lees contact and batonage is used to create mid palate weight and texture. High acidity gives this wine balance and a long finish, as well as contributing to the cellaring potential of the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Crispy Pork Belly or Mushroom Risotto
