Pale golden straw colour with luscious Muscat aromas inviting a sip; viscous but well balanced and not syrupy with layers of papaya, lychee and orange marmelade giving a true taste of summer's abundance; silky, smooth with enough acidity for a clean, "more-ish" finish.

In The Vineyard
Bush Vines planted in weathered granite topsoil on a layer of gravel and a crumbly clay sub soil.
About The Harvest
Grapes were picked on a cold morning. Yield of 8 tons per hectare.
In The Cellar
After harvesting grapes were destalked, crushed and pumped into red wine fermenters where enzymes for flavour extraction were added. 24-hour skin contact was given before being lightly pressed. The juice was settled clean and treated with Bentonite to make protein stable before being fortified to 18.5% Alc.
