A light golden green, the nose is one of tropical fruit aromas with a hint of gooseberry. On the palate flavours of white peach are 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.

Wine Orbit - 86/100
A friendly and attractive sauvignon, the gently fragrant bouquet shows white peach, mandarin and lemon peel with a hint of herbacous notes. It is juicy and smooth on the palate with attractive fruit intensity, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2017
