There's a subtle phosphorescent orange glow to this wine; the whole berry component adding texture and complexity. Lemon curd, rockmelon and soft honeysuckle. Texture, with clean acidity. A hint of apricot, delicate with a full mouth feel and lasting finish. Great on its own or with cheese, particularly a French Double-Cream Brie.

Handpicked in late February, the grapes were chilled overnight. The following day, approximately 8% of the fruit was de-stemmed, with the whole berries transferred to one 300L Terracotta Amphora for ferment. The remaining fruit was softly pressed to stainless tank.

Natural, wild yeasts were used and after the ferment of the juice had begun in tank, it was transferred to seasoned French barriques to finish. Post ferment, the wine was racked into 6 French barriques.

The whole berry portion of this wine was pressed after 2 weeks of ferment, and then aged separately in a French barrique.

Blending the whole berry component with the traditional ferment, the juice was bottled in May 2022.
