WINE OF ORIGIN: Wellington
HARVEST DATE: February 2014
YIELD: 10 ton/ha
Grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness and vinified separately. Cold fermentation and reductive winemaking to ensure a fresh, fruit forward style. The different varieties matures separately in tanks until they were blended, stabilized and bottles.
Fresh, tropical fruit and pineapple with hints of citrus followed by a bright acidity on the palate that makes for a refreshing aperitif styled wine.
This versatile wine is perfect on its own, but also works well as an excellent pairing with roasted duck, roast pork with lemon gremolata or Blue cheese gnocchi.
