SKU: N/A Category:

Colour

Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour, near colourless on the rim.

Aroma

The nose is gently full and soft in volume with aromas of pungent passionfruit with green capsicum and lime notes that build to show subtle intensity.

Ageing Potential

Serve with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years.

Palate

Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the flavours of passionfruit, capsicums and herbs show with a stylishly restrained richness and lusciousness, forming a soft core with a fine phenolic texture and line. Balanced, soft, lacy acidity lends energy and the wine flow easily to a delicately lush, light, lingering finish. This is a soft, rounded, passionfruity Sauvignon Blanc with a subtle lusciousness.

Winemaking

All Martinborough fruit from estate vineyards plus ‘Clouston’ and ‘Southdown’, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.8% alc. and 2.8g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees with stirring.
