Tasting Notes. Thee palate boasts with rich, ripe honeyed peach & tropical fruit supported by a creamy, toasty oak element. Oak is prominent but not overwhelming and balances the fruit well. Thee mouthfeel ends on a long, satisfying caramel and honeycomb note.

Vintage Notes: Following 2 dry years which produced smaller crops, the 2013 vintage yielded a big crop. Ripening occurred slightly later than usual, and fruit was harvested in a very short space of time. Ideal weather conditions prevailed during the harvest season – moderate day temperatures and cool night temperatures. There were no prolonged periods of rain or heat waves. Overall a very good quality vintage that delivered wines of exceptional fruit flavour, freshness and good structure.

Winemaking: The grapes were hand-picked during the early morning hours at optimal ripeness. The fruit was transported to the cellar in refrigerated trucks before being whole - bunch pressed. The juice settled overnight, and all parcels were kept separate and racked into fermentation with selected yeast strain cultures. A small portion (10%) of the total blend was fermented with new French oak to add complexity and structure.

Zusammensetzung: 50% Chenin blanc, 35% Rousanne, 15% Viognier. A typical Rhône style white blend.
