Pale pink in colour.
The nose displays freshly crushed grapes, with musk and floral undertones and just a hint of strawberry to top it off.
The palate is lively and fresh as one would expect from a frizzante style wine. The palate tastes of fresh grapes with hint of strawberry on the finish.
2011 was a very difficult vintage with some of the largest rainfalls recorded in a growing season. However, the summer ripening period was cooler because of this rainfall. This led to long ripening periods and great flavour and acid balance, rarely seen in the Riverina region.
Fruit was sourced from vineyards that were well protected from the harsh sun and which displayed the intensity required for this style of wine. The fruit was picked and pressed cold. Juice was left to settle naturally and then filtered clean. The wine was fermented cold to retain fresh fruit characters and fermentation stopped once a balance was reached between alcohol, sweetness and acidity.
