Enjoy the layers of fresh pear and peaches completed with a round and creamy mouthfeel. 70% of this wine underwent fermentation in stainless steel tanks for three weeks. Racked of primary lees and kept on secondary lees for 7 months before bottling. 30% of the wine was fermented and matured in second- and third-fill 300 litre French oak barrels for 7 months, before being blended together and bottled.
The wine is refreshing yet complex, with lovely tropical flavours rounded off with a lingering, fresh acidity.
