Monowai Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Tasting Notes

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.

Winemaker's Notes

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.
