Aroma

The nose has fresh, intensely bound and penetrating aromas of pungent passionfruit, tropical fruit, gooseberries and fresh herbs with a mineral edge.  This has fragrance and purity.

Ageing Potential

Match with seafood over the next 2 years.

Palate

Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is bright, lively and vibrant with a fine and intense core of fragrant passionfruit with tropical fruit, gooseberries, herbs and mineral notes.  The mouthfeel is bright, lively and energetic and flows along a zesty line with fine textures and racy acidity leading to a lingering finish of aromatic passionfruit.  This is a bright, vibrant, lusciously intense Sauvignon Blanc with fragrant passionfruit, tropical fruits, herbs and minerals on a taut, racy palate.
