Lifted, powerful perfume of citrus leaf, apple blossom and guava. Mouth filling and zesty, flavours of grapefruit citrus, green apple and lime are heightened by a refreshing acidity. A hint of chalkiness to the texture provides a dry finish that works beautifully with seafood.

VINEYARD INFORMATION
Vineyard Notes
Located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, about 4km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga, the soil here is heavy grey loam mixed with black Biscay clay and sits above ancient Gnaltinga formation bedrock. Strong vine growth in spring is tempered by summers dry winds, developing pure, bright and savoury fruit flavours that are tempered by cooling afternoon sea breezes. VINE AGE: 10 years ELEVATION: 25m above sea level SOIL TYPE: Black Biscay Clay

Winemaker Notes
Picked in the cool of the night and crushed and pressed gently and taken immediately off skins. The juice is held cool for five days, racked and fermented at a very cool 10°C for up to two weeks, capturing the delicate fruit characters. Once ferment is complete, the wine is stabilised and filtered before being bottled. HARVEST DATE: March 2016 MATURATION: 100% stainless steel ALCOHOL (Alc/Vol): 12.5% RS: 1.5G/L pH: 3.13 TA: 6.5 g/L
