Deeply golden in appearance with plenty of sediment in the bottle. Nose of honeyed flowers and a beguiling array of layered fruit. Caramelised pear tart and lime and cinnamon. It shows more commonalty with a Northern Rhône white than its ancestral roots from the Mediterranean.
Hand-picked, the grapes were whole bunch pressed immediately with no cuts (all available juice was taken). These pressings went into straight to a stainless-steel tank to be chilled for 48 hours. The wild fermentation proved to be very healthy and vigorous as it went to dryness.
Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally and the wine was bottled in February with minimal racking and no filtration. A small amount, 40ppm of Sulphur Dioxide was added at bottling.
Golden goodness, little white flowers, pear, lime, cinnamon, brioche, candied pineapple
