Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of ripe pineapple and pear, with layers of lemon curd, brioche and apricot. The palate is filled with juicy pineapple, pear and undertones of almonds and popcorn. A balanced limey acidity gives a long lifted finish. The layers of oak support the fruit and add to the texture, complexity and length.
Winemaker Notes
'I have a lot of fun making this wine. The very best fruit from my Swan Valley vineyard goes into it. The fruit is handpicked in the cool of the morning to maintain optimal freshness. After the juice is settled for 48 hours in tank, it is then transferred to oak barrels for fermentation. The barrels are stirred daily towards the end of ferment, then every two weeks once fermentation is complete.
