At harvest we decided to pick by flavour and concentration in the grapes. We then dried these clean, flavourful grapes in our kilns to increase sugar and concentration. With careful monitoring and testing we dried the berries for 4 weeks before carefully removing from the kilns and whole cluster pressing in our gentle bladder press. At the juice tray we tasted the juice to cut off at the exact flavour profile we wanted and did not extract too many phenolic characters from the grape skins and seeds. The juice was cold settled and racked to a Bourbon barrel for alcoholic fermentation. Our 2019 Muscat Appassimento is best noted for its aromatics and texture. When the alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation are complete and flavours are perfect, we then stop the
fermentation with the addition of sulphur. Finally, we remove the 16 month aged wine from barrel to tank, then protein stabilize, cold
stabilize and filter prior to bottling.


Straw with a clear hue.


Floral, sweet, perfumed, confectionary and concentrated. Honeysuckle, cane sugar, pomelo, poached pear and toasted walnuts
burst out of the glass. Secondary aromas of smoky vanilla bean, canned peach and beeswax with a variety of roasted and spiced
nuts join the intensely concentrated nose.


The palate of this wine reflects the aromatics in a harmonious, smooth flavour profile. A very concentrated and integrated
wine showcasing floral, fruity and spicy notes on a rich and full bodied palate. The focus of ripe fruit flavours including pineapple, quince
and orange marmalade are balanced with fresh acidity, and notes of bourbon barrel complexity and sweetness which enliven
the weight of this wine and carry a long full finish. A great wine to have with cheese, some special desserts like pineapple upside down
cake or on its own after dinner.
