Very intense yellow colour. Subtle honey, lime, spicy aroma with an explosive, yet elegant expression of fresh peach that is well rounded with lanolin & peppery flavours. Wine has exceptional balance on the palate. Entry is smooth with nice full, rich lingering after taste. Every part of the palate is filled with flavours of spice, lime, pineapple and ripe fruit. This wine has exceptional depth and length.
Vines with small berries were selected in the vineyards. Fruit was left on the vine for 2 weeks longer than usual to ensure very ripe fruit. Hand harvested grapes were crushed and de-stemmed, where after 10 hours of skin contact was applied to maximize extraction of flavours. Free run juice was fermented and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Only selected barrels of ultra premium quality were then bottled. Wine was bottle aged for 12 months before release.
