Description

The palate is beautifully fresh, with lively acidity and grapefruit flavours. Tropical fruit flavours give a natural sweetness to the wine, which finishes crisp, refreshing and dry.

WINEMAKER NOTES

Grapes were harvested with a range of maturity to contribute a broad flavour spectrum. Following harvest, the wine was cold settled then clear racked.

Juice was fermented at moderate temperatures (14-16C) using a combination of classic Sauvignon Blanc yeasts. This ensured a distinct varietal definition and fruit purity, and a textural palate. After fermentation, the wine was allowed to age in the tank on light lees to further add weight and texture to the wine, before being racked, blended and filtered in preparation for bottling.
