Fresh stone fruit and citrus on the nose. The palate displays white peach, grapefruit, lemon zest and apricot flavours with a fine texture, a slight nuttiness and crisp acidity.
The Viognier and Marsanne were both picked in the
cool hours of the night and very early morning three days
apart in late February 2019. Both parcels were gently pressed
before being combined with a portion of the pressings going to
barrel for natural fermentation. After fermentation the separate
parts were then blended to capture the freshness and complexity
required for the Dona Blanc.
