winemaker’s comments:
The fruit was hand harvested and we crushed a portion of the crop and left the juice in contact with the skins overnight before a very long and gentle press. Typically the pressing will take 9-10 hours, the slow gentle pressing gives us very clean juice that doesn'’t require any further clarifying or processing before a long cool fermentation in tank.

wine description:
On the nose strong spicy aromas of clove and white pepper dominate the floral background.  The wine has great fruit weight and texture in the mouth; with flavours of passionfruit, melon, spice and a dry flavoursome finish.
