Region: McLaren Vale, SA
First Glance: Light, bright, lemon juice, green apple
From grapes planted in 2011 at the Upper Tintara vineyard, the variety being well suited to the warmer Mediterranean-like climate of the McLaren Vale. Fruit was pressed into tank and fermented at cool temperatures to retain the brightness and purity of fruit flavours. At sugar dryness the yeast lees were stirred in tank weekly, increasing mouthfeel and helping balance the natural acid.
The Best Cellars View:
A fine and bright expression of the variety with plenty of delicate green apple, fresh lime and white blossom flavours, carried through the wine on wings of freshly squeezed lemon juice acidity. Poised and fresh.
