Made from a blend of 32% Chardonnay, 25% Roussanne, 25% Chenin, 13% Verdelho and 5% Muscat grape varietals. Grapes were picked early in the morning, sorted in the vineyard, and whole bunch pressed. The juice was very lightly settled with no additions to the raw juice and wild fermentation took place in old barrels of various sizes. Fermentation lasted for about two months, except for the Roussanne which fermented for about nine months as usual. The wine was kept on lees for around twelve months, then rested in tank on fine lees without fining for a further six months prior to bottling in June 2021. A total of 8,246 bottles were produced. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: The nose is exotic, showing stone fruit and talcum, lemon rind and baking spice.

Palate: The wine has an absolutely towering presence on the palate, robust flavours cut through by rapier acidity. A very invigorating drink.

Finish: Refreshing acidity with lingering notes of peaches.
