Fruit from the Heggies Vineyard is picked in the cool of the night and swiftly transported to our winery. The grapes are given minimal handling and only free run juice is used in the making of this wine. The juice is fermented at cool temperatures using aromatic yeasts, then blended early at the completion of vintage. In 2003, the grapes had such perfect fruit/acid balance that the wine was able to be made without any extra acid additions.
The bouquet is at full intensity showing lime citrus and lemon blossom with a fresh floral lift. The palate has wonderful zest and harmony, the initial flavour is of brown limes leading to meadow flowers. There is great length of flavour given by the interaction of intense fruit and natural acid.
