This customer favourite is definitely one to add to your basket.  A gorgeous wine with citrusy and subtle oak influence and a bright yet creamy palate.

The 2011 vintage in the Eden Valley was one of the coolest growing seasons on record with abundant rainfall in February and March – the critical months for ripening. The high quartz content and naturally low fertility of the soils allowed for excellent water drainage and moderate canopy growth in the vineyards.

Wines from this season show genuine ripe fruit characters that will have excellent aging potential. Grapes for this wine come from plantings in High Eden which cover terrain up to almost 600m above sea level. The grapes were picked in the cool of the early morning to maintain fruit character before undergoing a gentle pressing and a long cool fermentation during approximately 4 weeks with natural cultured yeast which helps maintain maximum grape flavours.
