Light and pale with a hint of green, aromas are lifted, fresh and punchy, with notes of passionfruit, fresh pineapple, green apple and grapefruit. Full of flavour, with a slightly textured mid-palate that finishes dry, with subtle citrus acidity.

Fruit was gently crushed and destemmed and immediately chilled to ensure it was cold before being pressed to tank where only the purest free run juice underwent cold settling for 2-7 days. Clean, pristine juice was racked off solids to a stainless-steel tank where fermentation occurred at low temperatures (12-14°C) for approximately 14 days. Specially selected yeast strains were used to enhance varietal characters. A short maturation (6-8 weeks) on light lees was followed by an early bottling to enhance freshness.
