A beautiful, vivid wild-strawberry pink with a hue of red onion skin on the rim. On the nose, magnolia blossom is followed stridently by perfumed wild-strawberry compote with hints of buttered white sourdough toast. The palate is rich and mouth filling with flavours of strawberry balanced by zingy tart cranberry and pithy Amalfi lemon notes. The texture is creamy with a clean, crisp, yeasty finish.

VINIFICATION:
Grapes from the 2015 harvest were pre-selected and handpicked
from our own private estate. A second selection took place in the
winery prior to pressing to ensure only the most mature grapes were
used. Repeated tasting during the pressing resulted in a low yield
extraction: we sacrificed volume to maximise quality.

The Pinot Noir and the majority of the Chardonnay underwent a slow,
temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks at about
18°C. 2% of Chardonnay was fermented in specially selected French
oak barrels for extra complexity and structure. After resting for six
months on fine lees , the wines were blended together with the reserve
wines prior to bottling.

AGEING: Minimum of 45 months on the lees
