Bright, twinkling pale straw, this wine shows wonderfully intense aromas of apricot essence, sweet pear, jasmine, and cardamom. The seamlessly elegant palate offers exotic flavours of white peach and cumin-spiced pears drizzled with apricot syrup. The warming finish leaves the mouth tingling with spice and the essence of apricot.
Winemaker: Anita Ewart-Croy
Perfect bunches of Verdelho were hand-harvested in the cool early morning temperatures and then gently whole bunch pressed. The wonderfully spicy, opalescent juice was briefly settled and cooled before being transferred to mature French barriques for fermentation. A selection of aromatic yeast was used to maximise the juice’s spiciness and rich stone fruit characters. Quickly after fermentation, the wine was racked to retain the fresh aroma and spice characters. Prior to bottling this, Verdelho was perfected with fresh skim milk before bottling.
