Wine Spectator #73 Top 100 of 2020
"Ruby grapefruit, passionfruit and green apple flavors are vibrant and expressive on a juicy frame. Shows off terrific transparency to the fruit flavors, and a long finish where a touch of Dragonwell green tea peeks through. Drink now. 40,000 cases made, 35,000 cases imported. 90 Points" —MW, Wine Spectator
Aroma // Enticing aromas of grapefruit, feijoa, bell pepper and a hint of orange zest.
Palate // Mouth filling and vibrant with flavours of citrus, green herbs and tropical The mid-palate is rich and textured while retaining fine acidity and elegance overall.
Winemaking: Harvested in the cool of the morning, fruit was gently pressed and kept as small vineyard batches up until blending. Predominantly fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve fruit purity, there were also several blocks that fermented in barrels and provide a layer of texture and complexity.
Vintage: 2019 was a very dry and warm growing season bringing with it small yields with great fruit concentration. One of our earliest harvests with picking starting at the beginning of March, periods of rain, with great flavours.
