Tasting Notes

Green straw in colour. The wine is dominated by lovely tropical notes with underlying green figs on the nose, fading into green pepper and asparagus as it opens up. It is underlined with a core of mineral flavours. A crisp line of acidity carries the wine beautifully, with a fresh and lingering finish.


Blend Information

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Food Suggestions

Serve with shellfish, mussels in a creamy white wine sauce, delicate fish, oysters as an aperitif, and also a great companion at any picnic. Chef's Special: Camembert Summer Salad

About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested at night.


In The Cellar

The grapes were processed reductively to preserve flavours and aromas. After settling out all rough lees, the juice was racked and inoculated with a commercially selected yeast strain and fermented between 13°- 15° C for about a month before some lees contact followed by clarifying and bottling in May 2016.
