Description

"Rich herbal and soft citrus aromas lead to a ripe summer fruit basket over flinty stones that is generous and warm-fruited with great length" Cuisine Magazine, Jan 2019

Very pale straw in colour with pronounced lemon and lime and tropical notes of passionfruit and melon. The palate is crisp and elegant with lovely length and concentration. This wine shows lovely clarity with bright fruit and a chalky, dry finish that highlights the mineral tones. Enjoy over the next two to three years.

Over half of the grapes for this Mystery wine came from a beautiful Vineyard where two and three-cane vines, nearing 20 years in age, produce intense flavours. A mixture of two and three-cane, VSP pruned vines, shoot-thinned to reduce crop levels and leaf-plucked to increase ripe flavours and prevent botrytis by ensuring air flow through the canopy.

The goal is to harvest all of the vineyards in great condition and with maximum flavour. Having their own harvester and winery allows the winemaker to pick each block when they are at their optimum. Once picked the grapes are gently pressed and the free run juice is predominately fermented in stainless steel tanks with specially selected yeast strains that enhance the wonderful aromatics. A small portion of the wine is fermented with wild yeasts (from the vineyard) in barrel (7%) and in tank (7%). Each tank is kept separate and tasted on a regular basis and only the best are selected for the final blend.

Food Pairing: Seafood, shellfish, salads, feta, goat cheese, fresh herbs, Vietnamese-style dishes, garlic prawns, light Thai dishes.
