Three Choirs Vineyards Label Illustration

2019 was generally a much later season than the previous year, but the early varieties produced very good quality. Grapes were small and the juice yield therefore also low, but the sugar and acid balance was good.

A fresh, aromatic, lychee character on the nose with subtle ripe grapefruit hints on the palate, crisp and zesty, leaving a long fruit driven finish.
