Whilst the wine style has evolved steadily over time, we have endeavoured to stay true to our original quality focus.
The resulting wine shows ripe passionfruit, lime and grapefruit notes. The palate is rich and full with a dense fruit core.
In keeping with our house style, the wine finishes long and dry.
