We picked our 2014 at a tiny low yield of only 500g per vine. It has retained a light golden colour of ripe grapes and offers a heady wine with rich aromas and flavours of apricot, peach and tropical flowers.
Hans' Winemaking Comments+
Gentle grape pressing was followed by a natural yeast fermentation in French oak puncheons (500lt). Half of the young wine went through a secondary fermentation with its lees regularly stirred. Aged for 18 months in the same barrels before bottling.
Original Tasting Notes+
An expressive olfactory symphony of elderflower, ripe peaches and exotic stone fruits complemented perfectly by notes of spiced honey. An elegant, refreshing wine of significant weight and texture, well balanced by fantastic acidity providing a wonderful long finish.
|Shallow (<45 cm) well drained sandy, gravelly soil developed from stony alluvium.
Food Matching Suggestions+
