Tasting Notes

On the nose this wine shows great citrus aspects and winter melon notes with some light toasted brioche in the back ground. Tangerine fruit and citrus blossom fragrances are apparent, with hints of vanilla pod and almond flakes. These characteristics follow through onto the palate. The fine, fresh acidity is natural, and adds poise and focus to the wine

Technical Notes

Influenced by altitude, slope, prevailing winds and sunlight interception the cool Elgin Terrior leads to extended ripening period on the vine. Later ripening, closer to autumn, mean considerable diurnal temperature variation. This slows down sugar development, allowing the accumulation of more aroma, flavour and the retention of higher acidity. Resulting in naturally balanced wine with complex flavours.
