2016 King Valley Sylvaner
{The Love Letter}

winemaking

Staggered picks on Feb 12th and 15th . Fruit chilled and whole bunch pressed direct to seasoned French barriques. The indigenous ferment and lasted about 10 days and peaked at a temperature of 26’C. Gewurztraminer (approx. 10% of blend). No MLF and no lees stirring. Early bottling in July 2016. Ideal aperitif wine.

nose

Subtle perfume with smells of lavender, rose water and cardamom pods. Hints of pine nettles, wet slate and malt.

palate

Great attack and energy as the wine fills the palate. Light bodied with incredible finesse. Gentle, chalky phenolic combines with pronounced acid to scrape the palate clean at the finish of each sip. Flavours echo the aromas of lemon pith and rose water with a touch of malt on the finish.
