Carpe Diem White
Grape variety: Huxelrebe, Bacchus, Reichensteiner, Chardonnay
Tasting notes: It is typically English in style, displaying delicate fresh fruit and floral hedgerow characters on the nose. It displays great balance with a medium fruit intensity of medlars, white plums and fresh grapes that express the perfect ripeness. On the palate it is dry and crisp giving generous citrus flavours and excellent purity.
Food Pairing: Carpe Diem white is designed as a fresh, easy drinking wine that can pair perfectly with a wide array of different foods. Our favourite pairing is with a quick green pesto pasta, lots of herbs, with a fillet of fresh white fish. Serve at 10 degrees celsius.
Winemaker’s notes: All grapes were picked by hand and fermented cool, in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit characters. 2 months after harvest our winemakers chose only the best and most expressive 2014 white varietals to come up with this early release blend. Those with low tolerance for sulphates will be pleasantly surprised to find such persistence and low preservative content in this young wine.
