Description

  • Off-dry style
  • Lychee & rose petal
  • Stonefruit & cirtus
  • Weighty mouthfeel

The classic varietal notes of lychee and rose petal are matched with stonefruit and fresh lemon aromas. This wine is just off dry with a rich, rounded, generous palate and lovely concentration. Floral, citrus and juicy tropical fruit flavours combine to produce a full-flavoured wine with a gentle balance of acidity and a weighty mouthfeel. Delicious!

This wine is predominantly from our Home block around the winery with the balance from Peter and Julie Woodward’s vineyard just a few hundred metres down the road. Both blocks have vines aged between 15 years old and 40 years old, growing on quite heavy, clay-based soils. These two elements combine to produce wines with a plush, supple palate. The 2019 harvest was a dream with moderate crops after a lovely warm spring and summer. Drinking well now to 5+ years.

This wine was made from several picks. The earlier harvested grapes providing the backbone with slightly higher acidity, while those picked a little later, added richness and weight. The grapes were pressed very gently to avoid the harsh phenolics that can come from the skins. The free-run juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures with selected, cultured yeast while the rest was fermented with wild yeast in old, French oak barrels. This is not for oak influence to come through in the wine, but for added complexity. After several months resting on the yeast lees post ferment, we blended a little of the pressings into the free run to provide some extra volume and complexity.

Food Pairing: Try with with flavours like: fresh ginger, clove, cinnamon, allspice, turmeric, madras curry, Sichuan pepper, sesame, almond, rose water, coriander, cumin, citrus, kaffir lime, lemongrass.
