Winemaker notes:
80% Dolcetto and 20% Chardonnay, juicy watermelon, crisp citrus and racy acidity. Crack it open at your next party and let the good times erupt.

The Dolcetto was transported to the winery and pressed immediately hard and slow yielding roughly 70% extraction. The wine was then naturally fermented reaching a maximum temperature of 24 degrees in the cooler than average vintage. Bottled with 16 grams of residual sugar per litre. Inverted and chilled, after which point topping trials begun. Finally settling on losing 20% of the Dolcetto and topping with 20% Chardonnay. This did add another layer of complexity given we had to disgorge and then tip out roughly 125ml from each bottle but the effort was definitely worth it. The Chardonnay was young and lean with 3 and a half months in oak, 25% 1 year old barrels and 75% 3 year old barrels. Each bottle was then hand disgorged, tipped, topped, re-capped, cleaned, dried, labeled and boxed for your drinking pleasure.

Not as aromatically pronounced as previous releases, a true reflection of the cooler than average vintage. In saying that, it is not a bad thing in the slifghtest. Hints of watermelon but laced with fresh citrus and at the forefront this year is beautiful stone fruit. Racy acidity is another welcome addition this year as is the 10.5% alcohol.
