Winemaker's Notes:

Typical lychee aromas with cinnamon and apricot flavours characterise this wine, which, while dry, still has a hint of sweetness. Especially enjoyable with asian cuisine, or equally on its own. With our two premium blocks we aim to gain optimum ripeness from each in order to achieve as much complexity from the fruit as possible. Conventionally trellised while grown on stony but fertile soils, the vines are tended to ensure uniformity of ripeness, with bunch thinning and leaf plucking aiding this. Picked in the cool of the morning the grapes were promptly crushed and left to macerate on their skins for eight hours. The grapes were then pressed, racked and inoculated for a cool fermentation with an aroma producing yeast in both stainless steel and old barrel. After fermentation the stainless portion is left to lie on its lees for 3 months whilst the barrel component is stirred to develop extra richness, body and complexity.
