Tasting Notes: This exotic wine is laden with fruit flavours - exemplifying the Italian term "tutti frutti” which literally means "all the fruits”. From Asian jack fruit to pear essence, apple and banana oil - the nose is intriguing and intense. The wine has a notably oily texture, yet ends fresh with flavours of ripe pear, cantaloupe, quince and honey. This rich and full-bodied wine is great on its own but also will pair well with weighty and/or salty dishes, traditional Korean or Chinese cuisine, and soft cheeses.

Winemaking Notes: The very small bunches (average 68 grams) were hand-harvested late in the season and whole bunch pressed for gentle extraction. After overnight settling, the juice was racked to neutral white barrels including barriques (228 litres) and puncheons (400 & 500 litres). The fermentation was intentionally long and slow with partial malolactic fermentation occurring and delayed sulphuring which resulted in a dry wine. It spent a total of 8 months on fermentation lees in barrel which contributes to the noteworthy texture. Total production: 1080 bottles.
