This wine is bright lemon colour with a hint of green. Exotic perfumes leap from the glass with vivacious aromas of fresh lychee, passionfruit and hints of fresh herbs. The palate is refreshing and intense, displaying crisp citrus notes and passionfruit flavours, this wine is well balanced and focused with crisp acidity and a long, juicy, mouth-watering finish.
Made from grapes sourced principally from our own Opawa vineyard on Rapaura gravel soils, the fruit was machine harvested in the cool of the night and immediately pressed at the winery. A cool fermentation followed using an aromatic yeast, with a small portion being fermented in large oak cuve’s to add a textural element to the wine. After a short period on yeast lees the wine was clarified and filtered prior to bottling in September 2020.
