Varietal: sauvignon blanc (70%) , pinot noir (20%), riesling (10%)
Wine Maker's Notes:
Working around a core of skin fermented, chalky dry Sauvignon Blanc, I have layered the wine with a fleshy component of lightly pressed Pinot Noir and Riesling. The wine was aged on lees for 10 months and has been bottled with no fining or filtration and an extremely low level of sulphites.
Producer's Tasting Note: A heart of white grapefruit layered with pear and apricot. A touch of almond resides on the pallet as the wine lingers long. Tames chilli particularly well.
