With 2016 being a drier vintage, the resulting wine is concentrated with a medium, fresh acidity and rich mouthfeel. The nose has layers of flowers, minerals and stones, with loads of white nectarine fruit interspersed with the nuttiness of poached pear. The palate is silky yet austere, with a rounder finish that gives its personality but with a clean and long lemon flavoured finish. It shows the epitome of balance with delicate flavours that keep emerging throughout its exceedingly persistent finish.

Warwick Estate has implemented an environmentally friendly approach to produce top quality grapes, refraining from using pre-emergent herbicides in our vineyards. We spray once annually under each vine row and mow twice a year.

Warwick's Winegrower Ronald Spies The farm also refrains from using harmful insecticides, rather concentrating on spot treatments in the vineyards.
