Straw green in colour. Aromas are reminiscent of walking through wild flowers; camomile, lavender, wild rose wine and the suggestion of a nearby bee hive. The palate is silky yet defined, with white fleshed peach, vanilla custard and cumquat layered over fresh grapefruit acidity and a fine almond meal texture with lingering hints of honeycomb.
The fruit was harvested in the cool of night and tipped directly into the press. Once pressed, the juice was placed into old French oak barriques for fermentation. Fermentation was performed by the wild yeast from the vineyard that are naturally present on the grapes. After fermentation, the barrels were topped and moved to a cool room where they spent the next 10 months at 40C. Regular bâtonnage helped to develop palate weight and add a creamy texture to the wine.
