White pepper, dried citrus peel, nectarine combined with red and yellow apple infused with fragrant vanilla bean.
Fine-grained with appealing chalky structure. Rich layers of ripe apple, orange, and peach. The palate is dry and mouth-filling with a long and lingering finish.
Perfectly balanced for immediate enjoyment, this wine will continue to evolve and reward over the next three years.

Winemaking and Viticulture:
Produced with fruit harvested from vineyards in the Omaka Valley. Careful crop manipulation to ensure vine balance is essential for this highly prolific and large bunch producing variety.
The grapes were gently harvested and pressed. The free-run juice was fermented in stainless steel with selected yeast. Pressing components were fermented in old oak and retained on lees post ferment to add complexity and roundness to the palate. Components of selected parcels were blended post ferment and carefully finished for bottling.
Alcohol 12% v/v
Residual sugar 2.1g/L
