ABOUT THE 2018 VINTAGE

Good levels of winter rainfall left the soil in optimum condition for the upcoming season. Bud burst in mid-April was followed by a period of abundant warmth and early flowering in June. In early August the fruit was thinned, and 50% dropped, to intensify flavour and concentration as well as ensure optimum quality. Warmth and sunshine from June to September meant the fruit was of an outstanding quality and picked at the perfect time.

TASTING NOTES

It displays a truly interesting and unique profile of flavours more commonly associated with the Muscat grape. A seductive nose shows perfume of white orange blossom flowers, melon, peach and white pepper. On the palate, citrus is more prevalent, tangerine zest coming to the fore alongside golden apple and pear. Fresh and lively on the palate, it has abundant length.
