Tasting Notes

Golden colour. A perfumed nose with lots of fruit, floral and spicey aromas. Flavours of litchi, lime and yellow fruit. A complex aromatic wine, with well-balanced sugar and acidity, this wine provides a long crisp finish with layers of fruit and floral tones.

Blend Information

87% Viognier, 13% Muscat de Frontignan

In The Vineyard

Our two most aromatic varietals on the farm compose this wine. These cultivars have beautiful fruit and spicey floral aromas. The vineyards are situated on South-West facing slopes with a North-South row direction for optimal sun exposure and flavour development.

About The Harvest

We hand picked both the Viognier and Muscat de Frontignon at 22° - 23° Balling.

In The Cellar

Both the varieties were tank fermented at 12° - 14° C to retain fresh fruit and floral aromas. They were blended shortly after fermentation and bottled early to retain freshness and vitality. We stopped the fermentation by cooling the wine down to -4° C. This resulted in an off-dry wine, with a lower alcohol and beautiful natural residual sugar.
