Winemaking Process Grapes hand-picked and grape must handled in a reductive style (without oxygen exposure). Must is kept chilled to preserve aromas before being gently pressed using a vacuum press. Fermentation initiated in French oak barrels using a combination of wild yeast and commercial yeast strains.
Maturation Wine matured on the yeast lees for 10 months. 30% new French oak, rest in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels.
Tasting Comments A rich, full wine with marmalade, honey and fresh peaches as well as orange blossom flavours integrated with subtle toasty French oak aromas. The wine has a creamy mouth feel with oregano and apricot flavours lingering on the aftertaste. Wonderfully paired with line fish, sushi, poultry dishes and mild Thai curry's.
