Tasting Notes
The fruit was destemmed to clay amphorae and Georgian quevri for alcoholic fermentation, before being topped and left on skins for malolactic fermentation. The clay vessels were sealed until October, when they were racked off skins with a small sulfur add, before blending and bottling in November.
Vineyard Notes
The co-planted varieties all came from the Old Quarter of the vineyard planted in the 1950s. NASAA certified organic and biodynamic. Old vine Semillon from Block 2 and 8 was picked on the 3rd of March.

A field blend of semillon, riesling and ugni blanc, one portion destemmed and fermented wild, on skins in a Georgian qvevri. The second ferment was in stainless steel, also on 100% skins. This lightly cloudy white wine shows captivating aromas of custard apple and citrus with hints of pithy grapefruit, pressed wildflowers, soft spice and distant tones of watered-down calvados. Slinky, kinetic and shape-shifting, it cuts a briny path, exiting textural, savoury and beguiling.
