Review

This interesting blend should not be overlooked and is planted on a cooler side of the Burn Cottage vineyard which was deemed too cool to plant Pinot Noir. A blend of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling which is aged in both stainless and neutral oak to add texture and depth compared to just stainless. The nose shows notes of white florals, lychees, nectarines grapefruit and fennel. The palate is bright and structured with stone fruit, crushed stones, crushed florals and a touch of thyme, the mid palate shows great energy and refreshing acidity which leads to a saline textured finish
