This heritage bush vine vineyard, planted in 1961 is well-established in a duplex sand and clay soil. Careful canopy management and pruning ensures the crop is balanced, the vines are tended to and longevity ensured.

The grapes were delicately whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in older French oak barrels, only the free run juice was used. The lees was stirred (battonage) for the first month.

Allowed to mature on the lees for 10 months prior to bottling, unfined and unfiltered.

Notes of peach, citrus peel and the signature dried pineapple on the nose. The palate is light but densely layered with a generously creamy texture hung on a pithy skeleton.

A perfect partner for roast fowl, fresh crustaceans & other denizens of the deep, firm fromage or enjoy as an aperitif.
