Growing Season

Small bunches and intensely flavoured fruit with bright aromatics was a characteristic of the 2019 vintage, resulting in beautifully ripe and healthy fruit that we hand picked in late January.

Vineyard

These old vines were planted in the 1970’s and produce low yielding and concentrated fruit. The vineyard is a small 5 acre block of 15 rows facing north south, planted on red volcanic clay of the Fordwich Sill.

Winemaking

The grapes for this wine were hand picked, highly clarified and cold fermented with aromatic yeasts in stainless steel tanks to maintain elegance and subtle aromas. This wine doesn’t see any oak and is bottled early to maintain freshness.

Tasting Notes

The rich volcanic soils of the Fordwich Sill leaves its footprint by way of a uniquely generous mid palate weight at a young age allowing this wine to be easily approached now and also age gracefully over the next 5-10yrs. Aromatics of white stone fruits are followed by a palate with guava and pineapple with a zippy acidity cleansing the palate.
