This 2021 Amberwine displays golden amber highlights – a promising sign of things to come.The nose is very expressive, revealing tropical fruit aromas of pineapple and papaya, mingled with notes of ripe, almost candied stone fruit such as peach and apricot. The lovely aromatic expression follows through to the palate, balanced out by excellent acidity and enticing richness. The resulting wine is complex, well-concentrated and velvety with beautiful minerality. The lively finish is underpinned by hints of honey and apricot.
The 2021 vintage was shaped by the whims of nature. Cold spells during spring set the tone, followed by consistently high rainfall throughout the growth cycle, resulting in an unprecedented threat of vine diseases. The weather warmed up somewhat in late spring, with temperatures conducive to good ripening. The broadly “cool” summer yielded grapes with promising acidity levels, making for attractive, fruity and aromatic wines. The wet, sunny autumn was conducive to the wonderful development of Botrytis cinerea.
