Colour At release, the wine has a vibrant straw colour with a subtle green tinge to the edge.
Nose There are fresh citrus and stone fruit aromas with hints of tropical fruit. A subtle flinty, gun smoke character combines well with sweet spice and savoury oak from the oak maturation.
Palate This is a wine with great delicacy showcasing white stone-fruit flavours along with attractive subtle brioche character. The barrel fermentation brings a delightful creaminess to the mid-palate. Overall, the wine is beautifully balanced with well integrated oak acting in support of the fruit and the tight acidity ensuring freshness. The length is superb and the wine finishes with enjoyable persistence.
Oak Maturation The wine was fermented, left on lees and and matured in a mixture of 2 year and 3 year old French oak barriques from a selection of Burgundian coopers with battonage employed. After 8 months of oak maturation, then minimal fining and filtration, the wine was bottled.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a short term under ideal conditions.
