Lifted bouquet with fresh scents of passionfruit, white nectarine, lemon and jasmine. Dry and light bodied, the palate shows youthful flavours of crisp granny smith apple, lime and honeydew melon. Finely textured with vibrant chalky acidity.
Picked in the cool of the night then destemmed and crushed, free run pressed to tank for cold settling. No pressings Inclusion. The juice is held cold for 5 days then racked and inoculated. Fermentation proceeds at a very cool 10˚C for up to two weeks, capturing the delicate fruit characters. Once ferment is complete, the wine is stabilised and filtered before bottling.
Lopresti Lot 10 Vineyard - Flour Mill Road, Whites Valley, McLaren Vale. Located in close proximity to the Gulf of St Vincent in the Whites Valley area of McLaren Vale between Willunga and Aldinga. The heavy clay here promotes strong growth in spring but dries out and cracks in summer, pulling back vine vigour as they approach veraison. The coastal location also allows sea breezes from the Gulf of St Vincent to mediate day time heat during the critical ripening period.
