Lean and tight with flavours of limejuice and fresh Meyer lemon over a backbone of crunchy acidity that gives an insight into the staying power that this wine possesses. This is a wine that is made to last and will benefit from a few more years in bottle to start showing its best. Serve with seafood such as prawns or scallops or delicate white fish such as whiting. A blend of several clones were used with the aim for an elegant and complex expression of the Tamar terroir that will reward cellaring and suit fine dining. Fruit was destemmed and left to cold soak for several days prior to ferment. Fermentation then took place in open fermenters with regular plunging and then basket press.

Tamar Ridge Vineyard
The Tamar Ridge range of wines offers pristine varietal definition, great purity of fruit character, and the refreshing acidity which is the hallmark of genuine cool climate wine. Only grapes grown at our Kayena Vineyard are selected for this range of wines. Located on the western banks of the Tamar River, Northern Tasmania, Kayena Vineyard is planted to a range of cool climate varieties. The majority of the vineyard is planted on gentle undulating slopes with a northerly and north-easterly aspect. All vines are hand-pruned and a significant amount of the fruit produced at Kayena is hand harvested to produce grapes that display pristine fruit flavours and distinctive varietal character.
