The grapes were harvested at the end of January, and pressedgently with only the free run cut used. A cool ferment wasused to ensure aromatic characters were retained. Post fermentation the wine was sulfured and racked off yeast lees, with a light fining of skim milk. This Verdelho was then heat and cold stabilized, filtered and bottled under screw cap to retain its youthful freshness.
The 2015 vintage is regarded as a classic Hunter Valley vintage, with ideal warm growing conditions leading up to vintage followed by a burst of wet weather in late February. Good vineyard management and winemaking has resulted in some of the best wines we’ve made.
Pale yellow with light green hues.
Lifted ripe fruit aromas of green melon and white nectarine with hints of figs and spice.
Abundant fruit flavours of fresh pear and paw paw, with a hint of spice and a mineral acidity, giving this wine structure and a crisp, dry finish.
