Crystal clear, pale lemon.
This wine is dry and vivacious with intense citrus and tropical fruit flavours.
Grapes for this wine were hand harvested in late April from the Cromwell basin area of Central Otago.
A long warm autumn with hot dry days and cool nights allowed an extended ripening of fine clean fruit still holding good acidity.
Fluvial, glacial silts and gravels.
20 year old vines
The grapes were whole bunch pressed to minimise extraction of skin phenolics and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks. The ferment was stopped to maintain a small residual sugar level to balance the acidity.
