The fruit for this wine was sourced entirely from the Best Vineyard, located in Brancott Valley. The vines are pruned to two canes on a vertical shoot positioned trellis. Shoot thinning, leaf plucking, and trimming are used to achieve balanced vines, a healthy canopy and clean fruit. Minimal crop thinning was required in 2021 due to naturally low crops.
Lifted nose of dried mango and apple, with a hint of quince paste and ripe apricot notes.
Dried apricot, apple and honey on the palate, with an underlying core of citrus fruit that cuts through these rich flavours.
Delicious enjoyed now now but will age gracefully over many years if cellared correctly.
Try this wine with rich, soft cheeses and sweet desserts.
