A perfect summer followed by a warm dry autumn allowed the winery to leave the grapes on the vine until late in the season. The cool and misty mornings provided ideal conditions for the onset of noble botrytis.

The colour is bright lemon, with aromas of citrus (lime/ mandarin), stone fruit (apricot/ peach/nectarine) and also honeydew melon. Layered beneath there are floral notes reminiscent of honeysuckle and jasmine. While the influence of botrytis adds concentration and richness on the palate, there is also a seam of crisp acidity that ensures the wine remains fresh and lively, with a balanced and lingering finish.
