A local blend sourced mostly from our cool climate Skilly Valley vineyard near the picturesque Kilikanoon cellar door with an addition from our high altitude Trillians Hill vineyard in Penwortham.
Once harvested, each parcel was kept separate, drained and very lightly pressed before the juices were cold settled. The racked juices were fermented cool at 14 degrees for three weeks before one parcel had its ferment arrested just before dryness, leaving a small amount of retained grape sugar to provide the final cuvée with some additional texture and structure.
Pale straw with some subtle ‘Gris’ tints to its appearance. Brilliant in clarity.
Lifted aromas of Japanese pear, green apple, cinnamon spice and fresh quince enliven the nose.
Fresh and lively with a rounded texture and a fine acidic backbone, the palate beautifully combines the fresh flavours of green apples, international pears and ‘just picked’ quinces with the exotic spicy undertones of cinnamon and cloves, in a long and indulgent finish.
