Harvest: Hand picked in two batches in February 2016.
Fermentation/Oak: 100% fermented and aged in French oak, 25% new. On lees for 11 months, no MLF. Batches kept separate until blending just prior to bottling.
Bottling Date: 24 January 2017

Tasting Notes:
Aromas of lemon curd, pear and citrus oils are supported by notes of brioche and nutmeal and light charry notes from the subtle French oak. The palate is restrained but still has good texture and weight of flavour. The generous mid palate is offset by a mineral acidity that makes the wine finish clean and supports the length of flavours. This is a restrained and characterful wine that will age beautifully for up to 10 years.
