Apricot and stone fruit aromas also show a light lemon and gravel nuance. The palate is bright and thrilling with crisp acid zip, nicely taut and tangy, balanced by ripe fruit notes of apricot, melon, and quince. There is also a lively lemon zest succulence. A light and refreshing mouthful which is so appealing and has you coming back for more. Ideal for summer.

Vineyard / Terroir / Climate A warm and dry winter preceded the 2023 harvest, with fairly even budding occurring slightly earlier than the previous year. The warm conditions continued throughout the growing season, which eventually led to an overall lighter crop in most regions. Heavy rains early in December brought great relief, and ensured that the vines were in good condition leading up to harvest. For most part of the season, conditions were ideal and the quality of fruit outstanding. Unusually high and continuous rainfall in March created some challenges for later ripening regions and varietals. Overall, a great quality vintage that promises to deliver some outstanding wines.
