A tropical fruit salad full of passionfruit and guavas. There’s also apricots and a hint of musky florals.
This wine is all about the fruit. There’s all of the above flavours, but as it opens it also reveals layers of apples, both red and green apples, quince and a crisp zestiness. Whilst easy drinking, this wine has a lovely texture and well balanced acid that leads to a vibrant finish. Serve well chilled and drink whilst young and alive.
2020 was a vintage like no other. Eventually classed as an essential service, we were able to get through harvest without a lockdown occurring.
The Spring growing season was warmer than average, resulting in earlier bud burst and grape development on all varieties. Harvest started in early February, one of the earliest starts we’ve had, with all whites harvested in February. Milder conditions and a rain event in late February / early March helped to moderate the development of all red varieties, giving them time to develop complex flavours and ripen tannins. The last of the reds were picked in early April. This year saw no disease pressure in the vineyard, all grapes were harvested with an optimum balance of sugar and flavours. The resulting wines showing wonderful varietal characters.
