Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Very pale straw with subtle green hues. Honeydew melon, green apples, floral aromatic notes and a touch of paw paw. Crisp green apples and notes of yellow peaches with bright, zesty grapefruit acidity and a refreshing dry finish.
Winemaker Notes
“Fruit was harvested late in the season when green apple flavours were evident and the acidity adequately reduced, then pressed gently with only the delicate free run juice being used. The juice is then settled to clarify before being fermented cool in stainless steel to help preserve fruit flavours. A short maturation period on lees during autumn and winter helped develop the flavours before a spring bottling.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Food Pairing Notes
A superb aperitif or the ideal wine to enjoy with a seafood dish, such as spaghetti tossed with prawns, chorizo, mushrooms and chilli.
