A deliciously brambley nose a firm ripeness. A rich fruitiness on the palate
with a soft dryness on a long finish.
A lovely perfumed nose followed up on the palate with ripe flavours of zesty fruit and a full
long finish. Fresh, clean vibrant wine.
Not produced in 2014, this wine is unique in our range being exposed to the influence of oak. Our Ortega grapes ripen early and after whole bunch pressing we ferment them in second hand French oak barrels in order to impart a hint of oak. We then stir the lees for several weeks in order to develop a richer, fuller wine style. The Ortega is then blended with 15% Chardonnay, resulting in a complex, rounded and expressive wine.
