SKU: N/A Category:

Colour

Brilliant light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, paler on the rim.

Aroma

The nose is softly full and voluminous with fresh, fragrant aromas of ripe passionfruit and tropical fruit with lifted exotic florals, fresh herbs and subtle cooler-spectrum nettle nuances.

Ageing Potential

Serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years.

Palate

This has good depth, intensity and is well-proportioned.  Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is taut and tightly concentrated with elegantly presented flavours of pungent passionfruit, tropical fruits, florals, herbs and nettles.  The mouthfeel is refreshing with soft, thirst-quenching phenolic textures, and balanced, racy acidity lending crispness and drive.  The wine carries with zest and energy to a brisk finish.  This is a taut, elegantly concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, floral, herbal and nettle flavours on a mouthwatering, dry palate with plenty of energy.

Winemaking

Fruit from the ‘Palliser’, ‘Clouston’, ‘Collins’ and ‘East Base’ vineyards, fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 4 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months on lees
