- Tasting Note - Fine, intense aromas of white blossom, pear and apple lead to a rich, rounded palate with ample notes of pear and white fruit echoed on the palate. Refreshing and dry with a good weight and balance through to an almond note on the finish. The vineyard is in conversion to organic status; no herbicides or insecticides are used and the vines are manually tended with leaf removal and green harvesting taking place by hand. Constantly striving to improve the natural balance between soil, flora and fauna, practices that respect the environment are employed; with cover crops in the vineyard, natural fertilisers to nourish the soils and silica treatments to help strengthen the vigour of the vines. The fruit is hand-harvested at optimal maturity.
