The Wine:

Picked on the 18th and 21st of March, where flavour had developed quite early for the season. The grapes had naturally low sugar, so the wine has a low 10.1% alc/vol, a great thirst quenching wine. The late cool season has created great acidity and balance of flavour. Fermented in French oak for 3 weeks before aging for 11 months in stainless steel on fine lees.

The nose is floral, with beautiful white spice and a touch of honey dew melon. On the palate it's all zippy lemon mixed with a mouth-watering saline minerality, the texture is silky and crisp, the typical Watervale acid back bone drives the wine. It is drinking well now but will only get better with a few years!
