  • Sold Out! - 12 bottle case

90/100 points, Tony Aspler

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose combines lychee, cinnamon and citrus with soft inferences of ginger and honeysuckle.  A taste finds a lively, spicy, round mouthfeel and flavours of Bartlett pear, apricot and ginger.

Estate Vineyard clusters were picked October 16th as grape sugars averaged 22.6° Brix.

Pressing followed a 48-hour cold soak of free-run juice on crushed grape skins.  After cold fermentation in stainless steel the wine aged in tank for a further four months before 144 cases were bottled in February 2020.

Dry: 1.5 g/L residual sugar

At the time of bottling alcohol measured 12%, residual sugar 1.5 g, titratable acidity 4.5 grams per litre and pH 3.75.

Production of only 103 cases.

Vegan friendly.       Certified Sustainable.

90 / 100:  "... aromatic, lychee and rose petal nose; medium-bodied, just off-dry, unctuous, lychee, cardamom and rosewater flavours. Nicely balanced..."  Tony Aspler, tonyaspler.com
