In the cellar Grapes grown from the two soil types are fermented separately, the decomposed granite bringing a lime and mineral character, while the sandstone more topical fruit and structure. The juice was cold settled for 2 to 3 days, then cold fermented (14° - 16°C) in stainless steel tanks and aged on the lees for 6 months before bottling. No wood ageing.
Tasting The wine has a distinctive yellow apple, kiwi fruit and pineapple core, alongside notes of green melon and limes. The wine is thus bursting with fresh fruit flavours. The wine has a zesty citrus flavour linger on the palate, with a long mineral finish.
Ageing potential Drinks exceptionally well now, will benefit from cellaring for another 3 – 5 years
