Tasting Notes
Green apple, flinty and tropical fruit flavours on the nose flow through onto the palate where crisp, clean acidity is met by a creamy midpalate.  A softer and rounder version of Sauvignon Blanc than most modern day examples with more than a nod to the French style of the Loire.

About The Harvest

February 2018. All grapes were handpicked.

 

 

In The Cellar

All grapes were hand picked, pressed in a variety of methods including destemming-crushing and whole bunch and then fermented in batches in stainless steel tanks of 5000 litres.  Cold fermentation with a variety of different yeasts was followed by 2 months maturation on the lees. Regular stirring of the lees allowed a creamy texture to develop in the wine.
