The long "Indian summer" that we experienced late in the 2010 growing season (prior to harvest) directly contributed to the clean botrytis-free fruit that was left to hang on the vine. The grapes were harvested on the 10th May with a brix reading of 22.5, and were gently whole bunch pressed over five hours. This delicate handling resulted in a wine which is bright greenish straw with a fragrant nose of sweet mandarin, jasmine and lacings of honey. Long, focused and fresh flavours of Meyer lemon sherbet, mandarin and orange dominate the palate. The wine is in a rich spatlese style with a residual sugar of 60g/L – elegant fine nature. When served chilled this wine makes a great aperitif. It has considerable cellaring potential.
