Winemaker's Notes:

Scented of pineapple, pear, and citrusy creamsicle and lemon custard.  A taste reminds of green apple, lime, kiwi and crème brûlé, and lingering traces of toasted caramel.

Grapes were hand-picked from our Moira and winery Estate sites at average 22° brix.  

After primary and partial malo-lactic fermentation, 50% of the wine remained in stainless steel while the other half transferred to French oak barrels.

Ageing:  Separated, 50% to stainless steel, 50% to French oak puncheons (1 in 14 new) for nine months before bottling in August 2017.

When bottled, alcohol measured 13%, residual sugar 2 grams per litre, titratable acidity 5.8 grams per litre and pH 3.42.

Companion Foods:

Serve near 10° C as a starter or with salmon, grilled fish, quail or pork.
