Fresh tropical fruits with a crisp acidity and touches of grass on the nose.
Tasting Notes: Vibrant and zesty with aromas of pear, gooseberry and passion fruit layered with subtle mineral tones. Full flavoured with a rich mid-palate, peach and lychee flavours which linger on the finish.
Fermentation took place in a stainless-steel tank at 15˚C using only the best commercial yeast strains. The wine was left on its primary lees for six months being stirred once a week to enhance flavour and mouth-feel.
