      How’s this for hands-off winemaking. Organic fruit was harvested a little later than normal to enhance the fruit sweetness and then the juice was then left to soak overnight with the skins to extract a little more texture and complexity. Extended lees stirring during a ferment kickstarted with wild yeasts from the vineyard itself has added layers of interest to the nashi, apple and honeysuckle-soaked palate. Excellent length of flavour makes this a star with chicken tikka marsala. Clean, tangy and tasty.

      It is beautifully ripe and inviting on the nose showing peach, red apple, baked pear and floral characters with subtle spicy complexity. The palate is succulent and rounded, and offers silky texture and tasty fruit flavours with a hint of sweetness, which is nicely balanced by refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2018. $20.00.
