Vineyard selection for this wine was based on the potential of each site to produce wines which show tropical fruit flavours and generosity.
“Exquisitely fresh, spellbinding seams of tangy grapefruit twist and squeeze through pristine grassy tones. Herbaceous shades inspire and elevate, whilst a cool, flinty contour arcs through greener lilts. Compelling and luxuriant yet showing perfectly judged restraint and synthesis between vital fruit and arresting acidity. Sonorous.”
