Tasting Notes

Pineapple pieces in syrup, guava and tropical fruits, with subtle lime aromas on the nose. A fresh, juicy palate, its vibrant acidity the perfect counterbalance to sweetly tropical notes.

Blend Information

100% Sauvignon Blanc

In The Vineyard

Produced from a single vineyard block grown at altitude (190m) on an east-facing slope. Limited sunshine exposure and cooler climes contribute elegance to the wine; the soil type, Tukulu, retaining irrigation and adding acidity. Each vine is picked back to a single bunch for concentration of flavour. The grapes are dried on mats for 2 - 3 weeks and turned minimally, caramelizing flavours on the sun-exposed side, the other conserving acidity. Average yield is 6 tons per hectare, 1.1 tons being used for the Sun Dried Sauvignon Blanc.

About The Harvest

Average yield is 6 tons per hectare, 1.1 tons being used for the Sun Dried Sauvignon Blanc.

In The Cellar

The grapes are whole-bunch pressed and the juice is fermented in barrel. The wine is immediately racked from the lees to retain fruit freshness and acidity.
