Vigorous fine bead with green apple, lemon, yeast and fresh sea breeze aromas. The palate echoes those aromatic notes with its crisp lemon freshness and green apple vibrance that is brushed with grapefruit and citrus zest. A gentle, creamier biscuit and toast note then develops. Elegant and well structured with good fruit, acidity and lees harmony. The finish is long, dry and crisply detailed.

Vineyard / Terroir / Climate Higher rainfall helped the area recover from a difficult drought period. During the growing season, favourable climatic conditions result in early flowering and fruit set, resulting in an early harvest. The mild ripening conditions and healthy canopies produced superb fruit with excellent fruit flavours.
