PDF Tasting Notes

“This wine has a pronounced tropical nose with bright notes of pineapple and lemon, topped with floral notes. The luscious palate showcases flavours of ripe pineapple, lemon citrus, nectarine, peach and tropical fruits accompanied by subtle grassy notes. Bright and easy drinking, this well balanced wine is refreshing with a long finish. Enjoy with an assortment of chesses.”
Graham Pierce, Winemaker

“A cool and humid spring started off the 2012 growing season which showed steady, concentrated growth in the vines. A lengthy dry spell followed which enabled us to perfectly control the vigor and crop load in the vineyards. July and August brought us excellent temperatures and dry days which then extended far into the harvest season. One of the best years we have seen for flavour profiles, balanced ripeness and quality.”
Steve Carberry, Winegrower
