Winemaker's Notes

Tangy aromas bespeak meyer lemon and apricot with tropical fruit and floral tinges.  Energetic and clean, the wine tastes of mineral-charged lime, pink grapefruit and gooseberry, leaving a citrusy finish.

Primary fermentation, settling and ageing with light lees contact were completed in stainless steel tank to produce this clean and linear wine.

2019 Melon
90 Points,

Just about to be bottled (Tuesday January 14th). Picked late because the acids extended longer than usual and 10 per cent of the fruit comes from winemaker Shiraz Mottiar’s home vineyard. Sugary (not sugared) melons, undeniable and absolute salty and marine shell-like melon de bourgogne notations. The specificity of citrus with ever-present neutral grape spirit streak of embracing acidity. Woke melon, wake-up call to more please. Imagine the possibilities with an increased sur-lie styling. More plantings and potential yields could make this happen. Will receive one last sulphuring before bottling. Drink 2020-2024.
