The wine is an brilliant pale straw green colour. The aromas are as immediately striking as they are appealing – Passionfruit, gooseberry, elderflower and grapefruit introduce the nose while slightly riper exotic fruits fill in the background. There is also a whiff of gun-flint from a touch of barrel fermentation and creamy yogurt-like complexity from extended lees contact both serving to to knit the aromatics together. In the mouth the wine is refreshingly dry, tangy, medium to full bodied and excitingly intense.
The flavours are seriously concentrated with those passionfruit, gooseberry and grapefruit characters complimented by pithy tropical fruit notes, think Pomelo or Jackfruit. Lovely saline minerality pulls the fruit through the mid-palate ensuring that the finish is long, dry and satisfying.
