TASTING NOTES: Light colour. Pear drops and pineapple fruit on the nose, follows through on a medium bodied, well balanced palate. Good acidity ensures good length and freshness. Ideal with seafood.

VINEYARD: A thirteen year old vineyard standing on loamy soil with an east/west row direction and perfect exposure for ripening.

CLIMATE: Enough cold during the preseason ensured even budding. Moderate conditions prevailed during most of the harvest with cool nights. Overall, very good conditions for ripening and harvesting.

HARVEST: Machine harvested from 2am to 9am into 4 ton bins, after we did grape selection in the vineyard.

WINEMAKING: Grapes harvested at 22.5 B, destemmed, crushed and only very clear juice are fermented with Vin7 yeast in stainless steel tanks at 13°C. After fermentation the wine was racked off the lees, stabilized and bottled.
