Tasting Notes: A lime, grapefruit and white peppery bouquet leads to a palate that is medium in weight and displaying rich, textured layers of lemon, honey, nuts and a faint creaminess.
Food Matches: This wine is best served chilled as an aperitif or alternatively would perfectly accompany a variety of Thai, Indian and Middle Eastern food.
Winemaking Notes: 2 tonnes of Gruner grapes were handpicked from Longview Vineyard in Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills. After being destemmed it was sent to the press for a light pressing to extract the best free run juice which was split into two parcels. One portion was sent to tank where it was settled before fermentation in stainless steel to produce clean, crisp characters of white peach, lime and grapefruit. The second portion was filled into oak barrels and allowed to undergo a wild fermentation on solids. This treatment has resulted in wine with a mid-palate richness - with honey and nutty characters evident. The two parcels were blended together following fermentation and have produced a very sophisticated, richly flavoured and attractive, complex wine. Following stabilisation, the wine was lightly fined using Casein to remove any potential harshness from the wild ferment in barrel and sent for sterile filtration prior to bottling.
