Crystal clear – very pale lemon
Intense perfume of honeysuckle, quince, mandarin peel and melon.
This wine is supple and ripe with intense pear, quince and mandarin flavours. The fruit and spice notes are underlined by a rich and creamy mouthfeel with a good acidity providing a mineral backbone and a long lingering aftertaste to this off-dry style wine.
Low cropping estate grown grapes for this wine were hand-harvested in April from Aurum’s Te Wairere vineyard in the Lowburn area of Central Otago.
Fluvial, glacial silts and gravels.
VSP Vertical Shoot Positioning
The grapes were whole bunch pressed to minimise extraction of skin phenolics and fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tanks with 8 months ageing on lees to increase the mouthfeel.
