2018 Sauvignon Blanc
The estate grown fruit was harvested at optimal ripeness in the early hours of the morning. The juice was pressed to tank and one third was fermented in new and old French oak, the balance in stainless steel. The oak component was left on lees for 3 months before blending and bottling.
Excellent growing conditions during spring led to healthy canopies and set the vineyard up beautifully for the rest of the season. A mild, yet very dry ripening season resulted in pristine fruit quality with an abundance of flavour intensity.
Brilliant pale quartz-like clarity.
Zippy vibrant fruit flavours layered with savoury cinnamon spice, a creamy mouthfeel and pithy texture.
Whilst ready to drink now, this wine will gain in complexity over the next three to five years.
