Winemaking notesThis wine is a Blend comprising of 41% Chardonnay, 31% Gewurztraminer, 19% Viognier and 9%Muscat. Each batch of grapes was gently pressed, then cold settled in tank before the juice was racked off, kept separate and inoculated for alcoholic fermentation. Each variety received a specific yeast selected to enhance the varietal character and preserve the fresh fruit nuances. Once fermentation was complete the blending trials began. Once the final blend was decided upon the wines were then married together, stabilized, and filtered before going into bottle.
This wine has a beautiful gold colour with a bright light golden hue. The glass burst with fresh aromas of cantaloupe melon, Asian pear, Lychee, and rose petals. These aromas are mirrored on the palate with tropical flavours of melon, Asian pear, and lychee. This medium bodied wine if full of flavour with a balanced acidity which follows through to a medium long finish that tantalizes the tongue.
This wine is versatile with several dishes from Lobster Mac and Cheese to roasted chicken and strawberry arugula salad to a vast selection of cheeses
