PDF Tasting Notes

“A refreshing fruit driven blend with fragrant aromas of Meyer lemon, lime and melon enhanced by herbaceous grassy notes. Citrus notes follow through on the palate accented by tropical flavours of kiwi and passionfruit along with white peach and honey. Beautifully complex with a rich and silky mouthfeel, fresh acidity and lingering finish. A perfect 
accompaniment to citrus marinades and fresh seafood.” 
Graham Pierce, Winemaker 

“A mild winter and extended spring in 2011 providedoptimal conditions for accelerated growth and an abundant crop. A generous primary growth allowed us to choose the most desirable clusters and reduce the crop load sooner. An early crop reduction and precise viticulture practices showed desirable ripening through the season. Hot, dry weather at the end of August and through September produced excellent flavour development and complexity.” 
Steve Carberry, Winegrower
