Description

"It is attractively fragrant on the nose showing green apple, grapefruit, nectarine and lemon peel characters. The palate delivers juicy fruit intensity and fine texture, leading to a lingering crisp finish. Up front and very easy to enjoy. At its best: now to end of 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

An impressive Sauvignon Blanc that leaps out of the glass with aromas of green fruits, citrus and hints of pineapple. The palate is rich with intense flavours of citrus, gooseberry and pineapple, supported by well-integrated and crisp acidity. This is an absolutely delicious wine with loads of flavour and length.

The 2018 vintage will be remembered as one of the trickiest on record, with cool days in February and March and rain coming just before and during harvest. Sugar levels were down in the grapes which prolonged the ripening season and pushed harvest dates back by about seven days compared to normal. Fortunately, the vineyard dodged the rain showers and harvested our grapes in the cool of the early morning, in very good conditions. They picked the grapes when the flavours were at optimum, to ensure they preserved the fruit flavours in the wine. They used a select destemmer harvester to softly handle the fruit. Once pressed off skins, the juice was then fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent delicate fruit flavours. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on light yeast lees to increase palate weight and complexity before it was bottled for enjoyment.

Food Pairing: Enjoy this citrus inspired Sauvignon Blanc with lemongrass infused pork meat balls served on a bed of brown rice, topped with a pickled carrot and cucumber salad.
