The serious stuff:
Grapes for this wine were hand picked at night at the Powderbark vineyard in the Frankland River region of Western Australia.
Only the clear free run juice was retained and vinified at cool temperatures to capture the pristine varietal flavours and aromas. Settled post fermentation and bottled to retain freshness. Unfined.

But, what does it taste like?
But, what does it taste like? Vibrant aromatics of lemon and lime blossom, with talc and minerality. The palate is generous showing great persistence of soft citrus and textural weight leading a long and structured finish of line and length without undue austerity.
