Description

  • Dry style
  • Nectarine
  • Lime zest
  • Mouth-watering finish

"It's bright and fresh, showing grapefruit, Granny Smith apple, nectarine and lime zest aromas on the nose. The palate delivers excellent vibrancy and fruit intensity, backed by fine texture and racy acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct 2020

This Sauvignon Blanc is made in an early drinking style with immediate flavours of tropical fruit with hints of asparagus. Intended to be lively and refreshing. The palate is crisp and tangy with a lengthy, citrus finish.

Various yeast strains including indigenous are used to complete fermentation over 21 days, then left on yeast lees for two months, with weekly mixing of the lees and juice.  Once the desired amount of texture had developed in the wine it was fined with milk to reduce the phenolics. Once all the various portions of Sauvignon Blanc were ready, the blending began which was the final task in making the Stoney Range style. Up to 40 different portions are tasted and evaluated with various blends put together tasted and tweaked again.

Only when the Winemakers are happy that they have achieved the desired style in the wine, it is prepared for bottling.

Food Pairing: Asparagus with lemon butter or fresh zucchini, pea and feta salad.
