This wine may be happily drunk on its own, and also makes a wonderful aperitif served with canapes such as smoked salmon blinis. Fresh seafood accented with citrus is a great match, such as grilled white fish with lemon butter, or lime-garnished seafood tacos. Lighter meat dishes like warm chicken and pomegranate salad work well, or tangy cheese such as feta served in a vibrant Greek salad.
This lively wine opens with bursts of lime and gooseberry on the nose, and the citrus flavours carry through to the palate, joined by tropical and passion fruit notes. The body shows approachable citrus acidity in perfect balance with the ripe fruit flavours leading to a clean crisp finish.
To make this lighter wine we harvested specially selected blocks of fruit early, when full flavour ripeness at lower sugar levels were reached. The fruit was gently bag pressed and the clear juice fermented cool with aromatic yeast strains, in stainless steel tanks. This retained maximum varietal aroma. The wine was blended and filtered to be released soon after vintage with distinctive regional and varietal characters at peak.
