ABOUT THE 2019 VINTAGE
Winter rains enabled the vines to take full advantage of good soil moisture levels during spring growth. This was topped up during the season by regular rainfall, which helped to maintain optimum levels of nutrition in the vines. Dry and warm weather at the end of June allowed for successful flowering over a short period of time, resulting in even fruit-set. Good weather in August continued uniform fruit development across the vineyards. Slightly cooler weather in September and October allowed for a slow ripening period that created the composition of varied and complex flavour profiles. Harvest commenced at the end of September and was complete by the middle of October.
This 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, it has abundant length.
