The Wine: A super example of Grenache Blanc, with a fresh straw-lemon colour, this has aromas of nectarine, mandarin, pineapple, brioche and blossom. The palate is creamy and textured with peach and mandarin flavours, and a vibrant tropical finish.
Food Pairing: Try with meaty fish and pork and poultry dishes.

In the Vineyard: Grapes are de-stemmed and crushed followed by overnight settling of the juice. A 45% portion of the wine was fermented with an indigenous yeast strain, in the barrel to enhance the texture and mouth feel of the wine. The wine was left on extended lees contact for 80days after fermentation and stirred regularly during this period. Only second and third-fill barrels were used during this process. An 8% portion of the final blend is a tank fermented Grenache blanc. This was added to the blend to enhance freshness, minerality and overall complexity.
