Tasting Notes

A complex Sauvignon Blanc that shows fruit characters which have been complemented by a small amount of juice solids during fermentation.

Colour: Pale straw colour.

Bouquet: Lifted nose of tropical and gooseberry fruits, balanced with solids derived complexity and herbaceous characters. A complete and complex bouquet.

Palate: Lively and generous front palate showing a great balance of both herbaceous and tropical fruit notes. The gooseberry characters are backed by hints of lychee and feijoa. There is a wonderful texture and mouth feel, creating a complex wine with that extra dimension. A crisp acid back bone gives the wine great balance, structure and a clean, long finish.

Food Accompaniment: Ideal aperitif wine, will also accompany fish, chicken and pasta.

Cellaring potential: This wine is made to enjoy now, while the fruit characters are lifted and vibrant. Yet, if it gets lost in your cellar, the quality of the fruit and the acid structure ensures that it will still be lively and drinking very will within eight to ten years.

Previous Vintage

93 Points “100% fermented in old barrels, then matured for 4 months. A spicy, cool-climate jalapeño character rises to the surface of the aromatics here. This is chalky and fineb with a succulent and juicy mid palate. The core of fruit is vibrant and almost floral, were it not for that streak of graphite minerality through its middle (thank you, Porongurup). Oak is almost subliminal, evident only in the texture. Over-delivery of deliciousness for the money.” Wine Companion, Erin Larkin
