Harvest was early in February, with the grapes coming in at 23° Balling. Only free run juice was used for this wine; after settling and acid adjustment, it was inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation was colder than usual to capture upfront fruit flavours. Two specially-selected tanks were blended and bottled early to enjoy as fresh as possible.

Packed with upfront tropical fruit, the nose charms with an abundance of guava and gooseberries. These fruit flavours follow through on the palate, balanced by a crisp acidity to ensure a fresh and fruity style of wine.
