Pale pink, it is vivacious, with generous, peachy, strawberryish flavours, in a slightly sweet style with good body.

Weather Conditions: Spring and summer were hot and extremely dry, enhancing great flavours in our grapes. Rain set in just one week before harvest, making for anxious times. Luckily the fine weather returned for another 2 weeks – just long enough to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.

Grapes
