Aromas of sunkissed fruit including slightly sharp rhubarb, perfumed lychees and zingy blood oranges are enhanced by a touch of creaminess. Initially the palate is all about bright zippy juicy acidity with a pretty herbaceous quality followed by the discovery of a lovely textural mouthfeel. The wine carries an intriguing mix of tropical fruits which linger blissfully. Sunny afternoons in the garden have never tasted better.
“I grew up surrounded by vines and one of my first words was an attempt at tractor. I was hooked and I loved being involved in all the aspects of winemaking from the vineyards to the bottle. While it can be really hypnotic driving up and down the rows of the vineyard, a lot of winemaking is really loud. The harvesters, the crusher and the presses at the winery and the trucks and tractors coming and going – it can be very noisy.” – Charlie O’Brien
