Unity

Unity

Savoury aromas draw flax, hay and earthy lees complemented with a delicate freshness of ginger zest and dried pineapple. Focused and rich, acidity frames a palate of apples and honey-dew melon, laced with wildflower, honeysuckle and toffee flavours. Mid-palate weight is lifted by a touch of minerality, enjoyed through the finish. Cellar time in the bottle will unveil further complex vanillin and marmalade aromas and flavours.

Brilliant upon release though it will develop nicely through 2025 under ideal cellaring conditions.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Unity is a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc picked at different times to yield a complexity of flavours and acidity. Different leaf removal strategies were employed to give a variety of bunch exposure times and subsequent flavour development. Crop levels were kept low at 3 tons per acre.
Production Notes
The fruit is hand harvested and allowed to cool overnight. Flavours ripened quite early enabling us to pick at lower sugar levels, thus crafting a lower alcohol wine. Grapes are de-stemmed and cold soaked for 12-16 hours and then pressed. Free and press run juices are kept separate and are entirely barrel fermented, in both seasoned and neutral barrels on full lees. Half of fermentations are wild; we also apply a variety of yeasts specific for promoting our desired aroma and flavour components.
Winemaker Notes
Unity is comprised of 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc. The resulting blend is maintained on light lees for 4 months prior to fining, filtration and bottling. One year of age in bottle.
