FOOD SUGGESTION: SCALLOPS / SHRIMP / CRAYFISH / LOBSTER / BLUE OR GREEN LIPPED MUSSELS
WINE NOTES: Smoky aromatics, with flint, bitter lemon citrus, grapefruit and suggestions of tropical fruit salad. Rich, slightly chewy palate with good mouthfeel, texture and harmony. Flavours of yellow citrus, currant, paw paw and sweet herbs.
VINIFICATION: Each parcel of fruit is kept separate in the winery. Juices were predominately fermented in stainless steel using several different treatments, however 11% of the final wine was fermented in oak and acacia puncheons and barrels. A small (c. 5%) component was fermented on skins. Around 35% of the blend was aged on full ferment lees for six months, the remainder on light lees.
