French oak adds style and class to this magical grape.  A contemporary and deliciously mouth-filling experience of white pear, quince, and green pineapple interlaced with a spicy complexity.


The grapes were harvested between the 23rd of February and the 1st of March 2021 at 23°B.


After gentle pressing followed by cold-settling for 2 days, the juice was barrel-fermented in 228L in 4th fill Burgundian-shaped barrels and matured “sur-lie” in the barrel for 7 months with occasional “barrel rolling” to add richness to the palate. To accentuate the fresh citrus flavour, 30% tank-fermented Chenin Blanc was blended with the barrel-fermented portion.
