Vineyard Notes
Vintage 2018 arrived early after an early budburst in Spring. A long, dry season resulted in virtually no disease pressure throughout the region. Winemakers were able to make picking decisions purely on when grapes displayed perfect ripeness. Cool nights allowed beautiful acid retention and concentrated varietal flavours.
Winemaking
Damien Stevens | Peter Drayton Chilled and Settled in Stainless. Cultured Yeast.Fined and Racked and held in stainless until bottling.
Colour
Bright lemon with lime hue.
Bouquet
Bright aromas of green pineapple and ripe guava.
Palate
Tropical fruits combine with slightly herbaceous note, finishing with a zesty acidity.

1-2 years
Food Matches
Either relax back on the deck with a bottle and nothing else or pair with Asian cuisine with a little kick. Think tiger prawns with a little chilli and lime.
