The wine has a pale lime colour, a fruit forward nose of green apples, pear and apricot with hint of straw and honeycomb. The palate is full and rich with a mineral core and refreshing finish.

All our fruit is handpicked and chilled in our cold room overnight. The following day the grapes are destemmend without crushing the berries and left to macerate on the skins for 6 hours before pressing. The pressed juice is allowed to settle, in tank, overnight and the clear juice is transferred to old French oak barrels for fermentation. The juice ferments naturally for 4-6 weeks at temperatures of 18-24°C. After fermentation we do batonnage once a week to add richness to the wine. SO2 is added after completion of fermentation to stop malolactic fermentation and preserve the natural freshness and acidityof the wine.

The wine was matured for 4months in old French oak barrels.
