Bursting with fresh crisp aromas of blackcurrant, lime zest and passionfruit. A refreshing and mouth-watering palate delivering flavours of gooseberry, green capsicum and blackcurrant with an underlying herbaceous thread. This wine is ‘lighter’ in alcohol, with no compromise on flavour intensity or complexity.

The fruit was harvested from selected vineyard sites capable of reaching optimum flavour intensity before the sugar levels became too high. This allowed the production of a wine lower in alcohol but rich in flavour. The grapes were machine harvested at cool temperatures and processed immediately to minimise skin contact. The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel to retain varietal character and freshness. Fermentation was stopped while some residual sugar remained in order to give the wine palate weight.
