Color, nose and palate

 

A brilliant, pale colour with youthful green tinges. The nose is intense combining the lemon zest and snow pea of Semillon with the gooseberry and herbaceous aromas of cool climate Sauvignon blanc. On the palate mouth-watering citrus fruits are balanced by hints of more tropical passionfruit leading to a long and lingering finish of crisp grapefruit acidity.

Description

Winemaker’s comments

The fruit for this wine was sourced from higher altitude vineyards in the cool climate coastal sub-regions of Denmark. Only the finest, more pristine, “free-run” juice was used in the production of this wine resulting in a wine of outstanding elegance, free from harsh, phenolic character. A portion of each variety was barrel fermented in larger French oak puncheons, introducing a textural complexity top the mid palate. Minimal fining and the use of screw caps are all further steps towards capturing the inherent delicacy of this cool climate blend.
