A sexy pink colour with a pretty orange tint. The nose is intensely aromatic with tangerine peel, raspberry and wild strawberries. The palate has a crystal purity with lovely weight and notes of grapefruit on the long finish.
Wine Maker Notes
The grapes were harvested and crushed. To achieve the desired colour on the free run juice, the grapes were lightly pressed. After settling in tank, the juice was racked and inoculated with selected yeast cultures for fermentation. In particular Saccharomyces Paradoxis was used to enhance the aromatic profile. After fermentation the wine underwent lees contact, a light fining and filtration before bottling.Fermentation temperature: 12° C – 16° CWood ageing: None.
Serve well chilled. An excellent aperitif or picnic wine. The ideal summer salad wine. Serve with fresh, seared tuna steaks; veal limone; poached salmon; asparagus quiche; cold crayfish salad; vegetable spring rolls dipped in soy sauce; ideal with sushi and other Japanese delights.
