A delicate salmon pink colour, with aromas of soft red fruits and baked bread. The palate boasts evolved strawberry fruit, a touch of oak and brioche with some well integrated citrus-fresh notes on the finish. A surprisingly hot spring led to an early April budburst and a quick start to the season. Flowering started earlier than usual at the beginning of June, but cool weather meant this was a long and drawn out process, resulting in a lower level of successful fruit being set.

Fortunately we were blessed with a warm, dry and sunny September which created perfect ripening conditions resulting in an early harvest with all the grapes in by the middle of October.
