Description

Scented of pineapple, pear and lime, it is zesty on the palate with tangy flavours of green apple and pink grapefruit.

Picked by hand from the mature vines of the Malivoire Estate Vineyard on September 23rd as grape sugars averaged 20° Brix.

After crushing and destemming, the crushed berries soaked for 6 hours before pressing. Cool primary fermentation followed in stainless steel for cool fermentation and after five months to clarify, the finished wine was bottled in February 2020.

At the time of bottling alcohol was measured at 12%, residual sugar at 0.9 grams per litre, titratable acidity 7.9 grams per litre and pH at 3.3.

Vegan friendly

Serve near 8° C with fish and chips, sushi, or fresh vegetable salads. Enjoy now through 2023.
