Zesty, fresh green apple, pear and lemon carry through this wine. Softer honeycomb, grenadine, floral, grassy and mineral notes embellish the nose while grapefruit, lime, quince and brioche garnish the palate. A faint trace of vanilla weaves through a tingly, cleansing finish.
Grapes were sourced from three sites, 9% on September 10th from the Estate Vineyard, 16% on September 18th from the Mottiar Vineyard and 76% on September 19th through 22nd from the Moira Vineyard. All were hand-picked at average 21.1°Brix.
After whole-cluster pressing, the juice finished primary fermentation in stainless steel. The majority (68%) of the wine settled and aged on the lees in a stainless-steel tank, while 20% rested in steel barrels and 12% aged in neutral French oak. The finished wine was blended in June 2021 and bottled two months later.
At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12.5%, residual sugar 1 grams per litre, titratable acidity 7.1 grams per litre and pH 3.24.
Dry: 2.5 g/L residual sugar
