On arrival of the fruit in the winery the team were aware they had some work to do. The berries were immediately crushed and the first 400L (Cuvee) was separated from the balance of the juice pressings. The pressings tank was partially added back to the free run juice to add solids. After 2-3 days this juice began to ferment naturally, until it was decided the balance of sweetness, acidity and texture was perfect. The wine was then chilled to minus 2 when fermentation would stop and then bottling with no additives and only coarse filtration would take place.
Colour – Brilliant straw
Aroma – Fresh lime, lemon, pink grapefruit and corriander.
Flavour – Lovely citrus characters define the length and the floral characters add freshness on the palate. The subtle sweetness only reveals itself as a lingering mid palate fruit bomb.
