A light golden green, the nose is one of passionfruit, pineapple and tropical fruit aromas. The palate shows a balanced weight and acidity with vibrant tropical flavours underscored by notes of pineapple and lime. Aging sur lie adds a rich texture while the balanced acidity ensures length and freshness.
Fruit from our own vineyard was harvested at optimum ripeness, free run and pressing juice was fermented separately between 12-15˚C with yeast selected to maximise the natural fruit flavours. A portion of the wine was left sur lie to add complexity and enhance the richness of the wine. The parcels were then blended to achieve a fresh, full bodied Sauvignon Blanc.
