Stone fruits lead the nose of this wine, along with citrusy pineapple, orange zest and yuzu. A mouthful feels fruity, intense and cleanly dry with zesty lime and citrus flavours perked by hints of green apple, banana and honeydew melon.
Enjoy now through 2023.
Picked September 23rd from a warm-pocket shore-area site north of the winery, as grape sugars averaged 22.8° Brix.
After crushing, destemming and pressing, 50% of the juice cool-fermented and rested in stainless steel, as an equal portion was treated in mature French oak barrels.
After six months, 99 cases were bottled in April 2021.
At the time of bottling alcohol was measured at 13.3%, residual sugar at 0 grams per litre, titratable acidity 9.6 grams per litre and pH at 3.4
