Planted in 2008 on decomposed Malmesbury Shale in a
vertical shoot position trellis system. The yield is 8 tonnes per
hectare and made from handpicked grapes.
Age of vines: 13 years
The juice is fermented in 500L French oak barrels,
predominantly older barrels. The wine is kept on the lees
within the barrel for an additional 9 months before bottling.
The wine is stored for an additional 3 months in the bottle
before releasing it.
Upfront quince, green apple and stone fruit aromas embodied
with nuances of orange blossom. Anna has a dominating midpalate with a racy acidity with hints of toasted coconut due to
the extended lees contact and barrel maturation.
The balance of candied fruit and full mouth feel lends this
wine to elegant pairings of sweet desserts and dairy based
white meat meals. Examples of which include nutty almond
Nougat, gooseberry cheesecake with berry preserves and
mild, butter chicken curry, creamy shellfish or fresh whole
baked line-fish dishes.
