It’s an exotic, racy wine with notes of orchid, fresh lychee, lime and white stones and a persistent finish.
How was it made?
This is the second release of Chalmers Falanghina, a vine variety this visionary grape-growing family first imported in 2015 and vinified as a Project wine in 2018. The vines grow on the Chalmers vineyard's soils of basalt, shale, sandstone, dolerite, quartz and limestone at an elevation of 210-220m.The grapes were handpicked on 2nd March 2021. The must was fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel, where the wine spent six months on lees. This vegan-friendly wine was made with no additions apart from a pinch of sulphur.It’s an aromatic, racy wine with notes of freesia, lime and white stones and a tangy, persistent finish.
