The second vintage of a new addition to our Yaraandoo vineyard, this wine is pale straw in colour with hints of green. Citrus and ripe tropical fruits dominate the aromas. These characters flow onto the palate with a fine texture contributed from its 5 months maturing on lees. This semi-dry wine replaces our semi-dry Riesling to give our drinkers a wine with moderate sweetness.
|Notes From The Winemaker:||The bud burst in 2017 came 2 weeks earlier than previous years resulting in excellent flowering and fruit. A dry Spring/Summer led to perfect ripening conditions post veraison, therefore disease pressures were low and excellent clean fruit was harvested. Add to this the dry summer across the eastern coastline of NSW, leaving the cool nights to help with a slow ripening period. The wine was first stored in cool, stainless steel ferment for 10 days. Aged on lees in tank until July then fined, filtered and bottled.|
