Wine tasting notes

Pale lemon in colour with green hints. Perfumes are of fresh, crisp apples, with a touch of tropical fruit including pineapple and freshly cut hay. On the palate it is fresh and dry, with a crisp, appley fruit offset by ripe, tropical flavours. Clean and dry on the finish.

Winery Information

Liberty Fairtrade

Charles Back was the driving force in a consortium that bought a failing co-operative in Citrusdal two years ago. Charles was keen to have access to the fruit for Goats, but also realised the potential that existed for the 50% of the co-op

Vinification Notes

The grapes were harvested in mid-February. After a brief period of skin contact (one hour) the free run juice was settled and inoculated with yeast before temperature controlled fermentation at 12-14°C in stainless steel. The wine remained in temperature controlled tanks until being fined with bentonite, filtered and bottled.
