Food Suggestions
Lovely on its own at any time and very enjoyable with food. Match it with salads, fish or poultry dishes.
In The Vineyard
Slightly later budding followed a very dry winter. Then there were record low levels of spring rain and a dry January. A cooling 20mm shower in mid-February, dropping temperatures and cold nights almost halted sugar accumulation for a few weeks allowing fruit expression and structure to come together beautifully.
2018 was a great year!
In The Cellar
Grapes were de-stemmed, slightly crushed and immediately pressed. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. Bottling was done on 2nd of May 2018.
