Certified organic, vegan and allergen-free - this Sauvignon Blanc is zesty, bright, and pairs beautifully with food.
Colour

Shimmering straw colour with flashes of chartreuse.

Tasting Notes

Fragrant pineapple and passionfruit characters with underlying hints of fresh asparagus and herbs. The natural acidity provides great length and texture, and a mouth-watering finish that is zesty and bright.

Food Matching

Enjoy this wine with light seafood such as pan-fried snapper or BBQ prawns, and with an array of salads. Delicious with a platter of goats’ cheese, pecorino and feta, and the perfect apéritif with fresh oysters.

Winemaking

The certified organic fruit for this wine was sourced from 32-year-old vines planted in rocky loam soils located on the central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The grapes were harvested cool in the morning then pressed into stainless steel tanks, with a small fraction of the juice transferred into French oak barrels (five years old). Fermentation in steel took place over 15 days with the selected yeast, and over the duration of four weeks in the barrels with wild yeast. Both fractions were kept on lees contact for an additional one month, and after five months the wine was prepared for bottling.
