Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The nose is reminiscent of an ancient overgrown orchard alive with the aromas of green grass, windfall apples and lemons and strewn with wild flowers. Charming suggestions shine through of organic dried apricots and almond praline. Golden fragranced sweet lemons weave with a herbaceous yet floral lemon myrtle to endow the luscious mouthfeel. The wine is gorgeously textural and slightly creamy bringing with it a lemony golden syrup that evolves into the lingering flavour of delicious French pastries.
Winemaker Notes
This wine is inspired by an ancient and distinctive style traditionally grown in the Jura region of France where the wines is most famously known as vin jaune. Here the wine is made by a similar process to that of Sherry, developing its unique aromas and flavours in barrel and under a strain of yeast known as flor. These wines can be quite pungent, the result of between 3 and 5 years under the flor yeast. Here the flor yeast which sits on the surface of the wine grows as a thin film or ‘voile’ – veil in English.
