    November 2018

    Intense, ripe sauvignon blanc with tree fruit, nectarine, red capsicum and guava flavours. A rich, gently tangy and deliciously accessible wine that stood out from the crowd in a tasting of 2018 wines.

    This offers a complex take on fruit-driven sauvignon style with fresh limes and lemons, as well as peaches on offer and there’s a succulent wrap of smooth-textured fruit to close.

    March 2019

    The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is on the tropical end of the spectrum, with hints of guava, pineapple and nectarine—a real fruit bowl. It's medium-bodied and silky in texture, with a long, flavorful finish.

    October 2018

    Brilliant pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is fresh with softly full aromas of white and green stonefruits, piquant fresh herbs, some gooseberry notes and subtle complexing mouthwatering minerally lees elements. This is elegantly presented and has good intensity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a rich and succulent core of green stonefruits and gooseberries with fresh herb notes and subtle flinty, minerally lees detail. The palate sweetness is balanced by fine, fresh acidity and the flavours flow along with an elegantly concentrated core with very good linearity and thirst-quenching crispness to a long, lingering finish of stonefruits, herbs and minerals. This is an elegantly rich and succulent Sauvignon Blanc with green stonefruit, herb and mouthwatering mineral flavours and a finely concentrated core with crisp acidity. Serve with Pacific Rim fare and Mediterranean dishes over the next 2+ years. 100% UCD1 clone fruit from estate vineyards, hand-picked and WBP, fermented in stainless-steel, a portion by indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 2-3 months on lees. Certified BioGro organic.
