In The Vineyard

Our three most aromatic varietals on the farm compose this wine. These cultivars have beautiful fruit and spicy 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 machine picked all three varietals at 22° - 23.7° Balling.

In The Cellar

The wine was tank fermented separately at 14° C to retain fresh fruit and floral aromas. They were blended shortly after fermentation and bottled early to retain freshness and vitality.
