  • Tasting Notes
    This wine shows lovely complexity with mix of tangy grassy notes, fig leaf, and peach and nectarine nuances. Brisk acidity with minerality on the palate which is typical of the long hang time in our cool region.

    About The Harvest
    Grapes are hand picked over a progressive ripening curve to capture the natural acidity and show the riper, tropical fruit flavour of Sauvignon Blanc with typical freshness and balance.
    In The Cellar
    After crushing, pumped through mash-cooler straight to press for draining. Free-run juice settled and fermented separately from pressings. Extended lees contact after fermentation for about 8 weeks to increase "creamy" character. Juice/wine handled reductively throughout process.
