A delicate, perfumed nose balances the crystalline structure and moderately full-bodied palate, completely unhindered by any oak. A hint of almond flakes and sprinkle of spice adds texture and depth. A lively, spritely and juicy wine that builds and builds to finishes in a creamy pina-colada cocktail-swirl.
The grapes were harvested from low yielding vines from three different viticulture areas. Each viticulture area gives its own unique flavor profile to the final blend. Wine was mainly sourced from cooler coastal regions. The grapes were hand-picked in the cool of early morning. Grape bunches were gently destalked with a Bucher de-stalker and lightly crushed. The wine was settled overnight and racked off the sediment. Fermentation took place at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks with a combination of yeast. The wine is made in a fresh fruity style without any wood component.
