TASTING NOTES

CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO OUR WINE CLUB MEMBERS ONLY

Bright green lemon hue. Classic youthful June’s character on the nose with lime, flint stone, smoke and subtle grassy, herbal notes adding complexity. Dry to just off-dry with vibrant acidity surrounded by peach and citrus fruit flavours. Remarkably rich with savory notes on the palate. Extremely food-friendly and versatile with salads, river fish, spiced and spicy foods or on its own as a perfect aperitif.

WINEMAKING NOTES

June’s Vineyard is a unique site with significant quantities of decomposed yellow limestone amongst the clay loam soils giving the wines an extra dimension of stony minerality on top of the ripe fruit and flowery aromas. Named after one of the owners of the winery, this site which was planted in 1999, continues to deliver exceptional Riesling and Chardonnay making two of the most distinctive wines in our portfolio. Clone 49 Riesling is an old clone which was popular in Alsace, France for many years. Its trademarks are exceptional fruit and floral character with an appealing green herbal note in young wines. We continue to work very hard to capture the very best expression of this site vintage after vintage.
