Description

  • French oak
  • Nectarine
  • Creamy
  • Defined finish

Ripe peach, apricot and nectarine flesh aromas with delicate floral highlights. Palate is generous with luscious fruits, creamy texture and a defined finish. Well-rounded, structured and unique style.

The season started off cooler and wetter than normal, this delayed flowering but also meant irrigation wasn’t required until January. The vines found balance driving deep into the soil to find water. Sauvignon canopies remained healthy and vibrant with shoot thinning help open the canopy and allow sunlight and air flow. Leaf plucking helped ripen the skin phenolics and bring a crunchiness and tropical flavour with baking spices to the Loire clones. This organic fruit shows great resilience and a natural disease tolerance.

They settled the fresh juice after a gentle pressing. They ferment all of their Sauvignon in old French Oak barrels with wild yeast taking six months to get through to dryness. This prolonged fermentation provides layers and complexity. They allow the wine to go through 50% MLF before they rack out of barrels for blending. This organic wine was estate bottled without fining.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with chicken Alfredo or rich seafood dishes
