Lifted aromatics of citrus with floral overtones and an underlying lemongrass character. Dry, fresh acidity with a ripe citrus zest, minerally backbone that is well supported by lemon/lime fruit duo. A light and elegant body with a very long and persistent finish.
WINEMAKING The fruit was harvested in the early hours of the morning and chilled to preserve fruit intensity. There was minimal delay in processing time. Some pre-pressing cold maceration occurred to maximise mid-palate texture. Only free run juice was used for this wine. Fermentation was carried out under temperature controlled conditions (12 - 14°C) with a select German yeast extract for 25 days.
