Tasting Note:
This blend of skins fermentations with the more traditional pressed juice results in an exotically perfumed wine, with aromas of grapefruit, guava, green papaya salad and Vietnamese mint. The palate compliments, an intense nose, with flavours of ginger, lemon grass and cinnamon. The 2019 season with it lower yields and great balance of sugar and flavour intensity has resulted in a wine with real palate volume and a long lingering finish. 

This is a Dry, Medum- bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium finish.
