Clear, bright pale lemon with green tinges and a slight effervescence. Aromatically the wine shows classic notes of elderflower and white iris alongside lemon citrus. The wine is marked by a delicate, mouth filling spritz which powder coats the entire inside of the pallet with a lovely light airiness. Flavours of white peach, nectarine and a faint hint of sweet citrus all present themselves. A clean acid line then provides the wine with a genuine counterpoint to retain some natural grape sugar and ensures a real sense of balance.

Growing Conditions

The 2019 growing season commenced with a warmer than average winter an spring before a couple of hot spells and perfect conditions eventuated as we closed in on harvest. This resulted in some early harvest sugar accumulation without the required flavour development in the grapes. However with well managed canopies and moisture levels the flavour components caught up and, whilst yields were low, the resulting quality was very good. A year when there was no substitute for winemakers spending significant time in the vineyards.
