100% Sauvignon Blanc

TECHNICAL DATA
Alcohol: 12.9%
pH: 3.2

WINEMAKING NOTES
100% free run juice, cold settled with a X5 yeast ferment. 20% barrel fermented in new French barriques prior to maturation on fine lees for 2 months. The balance was fermented in stainless steel tanks before being blended and bottled in July 2023.

TASTING NOTES
NOSE:
 Aromas of intense passionfruit and guava lead into a core blackcurrant leaf and sweet tropical passionfruit, with cut grass characters.
PALATE: Aromas of intense lemon, lime and snow peas lead into a palate displaying subtle oak influences that expertly weave into tropical, passionfruit and cut grass characters. This lively and youthful wine simply screams of sauvignon blanc with its seamless acidity and good length.

★★★★★

Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Score - 95

★★★★

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
