Made from predominantly Verdelho and Chenin Blanc grapes, selected in the vineyard. These grapes are picked slightly later than if we were to utilise them in a classic white style wine, resulting in beautiful but delicate tropical flavours. Fermentation is also stopped early, retaining natural grape sugar in the wine to give the necessary sweetness. The benefit of this is that we realise much lower alcohol content, making this not only fruity and sweet but also light-bodied in style. No one can argue the benefits of lower alcohol wine in these times. All in all a great package and a much loved wine which as always should be served well chilled.

Winery Tasting Notes
A restrained blend of lemons, white stone fruit and vanillan oak, with a hint of flinty complexity.
Lovely lemon lime citrus to the fore, with balanced and cleansing acidity on the finish. Medium-bodied with texture and structure. Beautifully integrated barrel fermentation characters of vanillan and nuts. As with the nose, a hint of flintiness adding to the complexity. Cellaring for the next 5 to 7 years may give more complexity for those who like a bigger, richer style, but it also looks great now, fresh and alive.
