"The wine is beautifully maturing; the lifted bouquet shows grilled peach, poached pear, mixed spice and rich floral aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is supple and lingering. It is attractively expressed and flavoursome with a lingering silky finish" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2019

"Grown at Bannockburn, the 2016 vintage (4*) is scented, mouthfilling and slightly sweet (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), with vibrant pear, peach, lychee and spice flavours, balanced acidity, a slightly oily texture and good concentration" Michael Cooper's Buyers Guide

Pale straw with clear hues. Ripe pears, melon and ginger on the nose with hints of florals and lime. White peach, nashi pears, sweet ripe citrus, and melon show on the palate with a hint of gingerbread and spice. This wine is nicely balanced with sweet fresh fruit entry, plenty of acid and a clean complex finish.

The fruit was hand harvested on 12th April 2016 (22.8 brix) and whole bunch pressed to tank and the juice was inoculated with selected wine yeasts. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tank. The fermentation was stopped retaining around 6g/L of residual sugar.
