The palate offers mouthfilling flavours of baked quince, pear, baking spices and subtle vanilla pod. A long and textural wine with a salivating finish.
Picking decisions were taken to maximize fruit expression whilst still maintaining the delicate balance between ripeness & acidity. The fruit was gently pressed with only the free run juice going to tank & a small portion being run to neutral French oak barrels. A slow cool fermentation followed to ensure a purity of fruit & then aged on yeast lees for approximately 3 months to add texture and mouth feel. Both parcels of wine were then blended together adding different layers of texture & additionalcomplexity to the finished wine before being estate bottled here at the Greystone vineyard.
