VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING
The Great Southern delivered excellent growing conditions, with winter and spring being reasonably dry and summer holding cooler temperatures.
The parcels of free-run juice underwent a long and slow cold fermentation in a stainless steel tank immediately after pressing to preserve the fruit character. Gentle lees stirring was carried out to add subtle texture. The wine was bottled in June 2020.
The color is light with a green tinge, the aromatics display apple blossom and lime tones. The palate shows a softly textured, crisp style with subtle mineral undertones and a tight crisp finish. It is anticipated in time this wine will develop a stone-line minerality and poached citrus richness whilst retaining its linear acidity.
