Hand harvested fruit was destemmed and pumped over at the start of fermentation to build up a yeast population. Punched down twice daily until the ferment neared dryness. Pressed after 14 days on skins and put to barrel to age. Aged for 7 months in 2 neutral 500 L barrels and 1 neutral 225 L barrel.
Eldeberry, rose and orange peel on the nose. This wine is bursting with flavour from the nose to the palate. Notes of honey and peach interlace on the palate with a soft tannins and a slight bitterness. Reminiscent of an apertif-style drink and perfect for sipping or pairing savoury things!
