Hand-picked and gently pressed has maximised the ‘fruit c ore’. Barrel fermented and partial lees stirring added c omplexity and richness.

Pale quartz-green; a vibrant and fresh wine that speaks of both its sense of place and variety; it is impossible to deconstruct the grapefruit and stone fruit contributions to the flavour, simply to note in passing that there is an airbrush of oak before the long finish completes its message.
