Winemaker Vintage Notes
“The 2015 vintage, whilst commencing very early, was extremely good for aromatic grape varieties with amazing natural acidity present in the juices. This natural acidity enabled the production of wines of excellent varietal purity and freshness. Clean, cold ferments were integral in harnessing the brightness and vibrancy of both varieties, while extended lees contact on select parcels provides texture and depth.” Julian Langworthy, Deep Woods Estate head winemaker
Very pale in colour and with green hues, the nose is delicate yet lifted with aromas of passion fruit, guava and lime blossom. On the palate this wine provides intense citrus flavours, with subtly intertwined herbaceous notes adding lovely complexity. Zesty and refreshing, the excellent acidic backbone provides lovely structure and length.
