Warden Abbey Vineyard

2013 Vintage

Bacchus Reichensteiner

White flowers a hint of elderflower the nose has an attractive mix of spring flowers. The start of the palate is fresh citrusy but it fills out in the middle with a tropical fruit mix and a hint of white peach. The sweetness on the back palate is balanced by lime freshness and the finish has a good length of flavour.

Müller Thurgau Regner

The nose has white flowered fragrances and although the palate starts with green apple firmness there is sweetness in the middle more of a tropical fruit mix. The white peach at the back is underpinned by apple a mix of flavours a bitter sweet charm and the finish has fragrance and length.

Two wines were made in 2013. The tasting notes (see above) but the names are still under discussion.
