Viticulture and Harvest
The fruit was thinned in summer and attention was given to ensure that a sufficient canopy allowed protected the grapes against sunburn.
The 2017 was machine harvested, picked earlier than previous years to ensure a higher natural acid and lower alcohol.
The wine was crushed, pressed and settled so that the ferment was conduced with a perfectly clear juice. An aromatic yeast was used so as to enhance give the wine a tropical fruit character.
Apple blossom aromatics opened up for a fresh, citrusy palate. Notes of passionfruit and guava also show.
Age will yield a full and rich palate with characters of honey-lemon and zesty marmelade.
