The grapes had six hours skin contact before the press must and free running juice was separated. After two weeks the fermentation process was completed. The press must and free running juice were blended for this specific style of wine. Throughout these processes, reductive methods were followed.
A delicate fruitful wine in the "new world" style. The upfront acids add a refreshing dimension. The style is crisp and dry with mouthwatering gooseberry and tropical fruit salad flavours, with a hint of citrus on the palate. These carry through well into a long tangy finish. Nose loaded with guava and coriander amongst other ripe tropical tones. It is excellent with seafood, pasta, grilled chicken kebabs and fresh summer salads.
