Fresh, vibrant, the nose just sings of fresh passionfruit, lemon curd, fresh florals, green herbaceous notes. Stratling citrus acid flavours, providing length and purity. Passionfruit, fresh apples, and lemon flavours.
For this wine, each year we source from a few rows that are planted east/west in the Jaeschke Vineyard. This is definitely our best No.8 yet. Harvested nice and early at 9.2 Baume, we finished with wine that is only 6.0% abv, with 58g/L sugar and 10.2g/L acid. The balance of this wine is amazing, and probably John’s wine of the vintage.
