Description

Winemaking can be fickle beast and in 2017 a heavy frost wiped out most of Norrell Robertson’s potential harvest – in the end he only yielded 1090 kg’s of Macabeo… not enough to put through the wine press. Creative winemaking kicked in and the decision was made to put whole bunches into two 900L egg fermenters. Norrell gently ‘punched’ the bunches down over 7 months with full skin and stem contact and NO added sulphur – if you want truly natural wine then this is the wine for you. The result is a phenolic, lightly amber wine with plenty of personality – best enjoyed with olives or aromatic fish.

Smells

complex aromas of freshly cut hay, camomile, nuts and liquorice.

Tastes

powerful tannins (for a white wine) with notes of dried fruit, both tropical and citrus, sherry-like salinity and lengthy phenolics.
