Tasting Notes

Aromas of tropical fruits like granadilla, pineapple, spanspek, ripe mango and pears are balanced by hints of white pepper and mineral flavours on the nose. The tropical fruit flavours follow through on the palate with hints of lemon on the aftertaste. A fruity wine in its youth that will show a lot of complexity with a bit of bottle aging. 60% Semillon, 40% Sauvignon blanc.

Food Pairing

Calamari tubes stuffed with mussels and shrimps. Seared tuna steak or smoked chicken salad.

Cellaring Notes

After fermentation the wine is left on the lees for three months before being racked, blended, fined and stabilized in preparation for bottling.

Vinification

Both varietals were hand picked early in the morning to retain the delicate fruit flavours. A light pressing followed by cold fermentation in stainless steel to enhance the typical varietal characters.
