Generous aromas of pear, apple, and honeysuckle, tinged with hints of lychee and exotic spices. On the palate, the apple, pear and honeysuckle aromas continue on, providing beautiful intense, expressive flavours, with a gentle minerality that ensures the wine finishes clean and fresh.
The grapes for this wine were harvested in late September, 2009 from the Burrowing Owl Estate vineyards. The fruit was whole-cluster pressed and the juice was cold-settled for 48 hours. The juice was racked off of solids and inoculated with a mixture of our preferred yeast strains. It was fermented at 15°C in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine then aged in tank for 4 months prior to being filtered and bottled in March 2010.
