Crisp ● Gooseberry ● Passionfruit
The flavours & aromas in our Sauvignon Blanc reflect the high altitude, inland position of our vineyard. Passionfruit, pineapple and tropical fruit aromas on the nose. The palate shows a balanced weight and acidity with vibrant tropical flavours underscored by notes of pineapple and lime.
Our 3 blocks of Sauvignon Blanc are cane pruned to naturally manage yields and aid canopy management to ensure the crop can fully ripen. Each block is harvested separately at peak flavour and sugar ripeness for our wine style. The grapes are machine harvested, crushed and pressed to stainless steel tanks for ferment. The juice is inoculated with yeast and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve all the primary fruit aromas and flavours. Following ferment, the wine is racked off its lees and blended together. The wine has been filtered and minimally fined to ensure its purity and freshness.
