Fantastic bouquet of fresh baked goods and ripe pears, there’s a delicious spice and apple fragrance, quince and a touch of fresh grapefruit marmalade and ginger. On the palate - crisp, crunchy, fresh, fruity salivating and dry. Textures from the lees and unfined technique layer in mouthfeel and character. Balanced, well made and delicious. Best drinking from day of purchase and through 2024+.
After hand picking, the fresh juice was chilled and settled for two days to ensure purity of flavour. Fermentation lasted until 17 g/L natural residual sugar was remaining. Estate bottled without filtration or sulphur and allowed the fermentation to continue in bottle until completely dry. The wine was not disgorged prior to release as it was found this aided flavour richness but it does mean some natural sediment will occur. Fresh, dry and with a persistent and fine mousse. No added sulphur.
Please note as this wine is bottle fermented and not disgorged, filtered nor fined with animal products -as such there will be a small amount of natural sediment present at the bottom of the bottle. We recommend standing it upright 24 hrs before serving.
