Winemaking:

2018 brought us fruit that needed to be looked after slightly different to normal years. Ferment temperatures with 16-18?C were higher than usual but helped the yeasts to form more of the ripe tropical flavours that we normally have come from the vineyard. It was also critical to keep the ferments clean and made us rack them a bit earlier than usual so we could maintain those elegant flavours.

Style: Medium. 

Appearance:
A pale yellow, with light green hues on the rim.

Impressions:


Plenty of gooseberry with some cassis and passionfruit are prominent on the nose. Perfumed aromas of lime also make an appearance.

The palate is led by more gooseberry and cassis, with subtle tropical flavours of pineapple and passionfruit rounding up this drop with a nicely balanced mouth- feel.

Accompaniments:


Chilled as is, after a hard days work, or with a tasty white meat dish like roast chicken, as well as delicious seafood such as crayfish and scallops.

Technical Notes:


Vintage: 2018 Appellation: Nelson Region
Fermentation: 100% stainless steel (no malolactic)
