Lightly aromatic with delightful palate structure. More food oriented than some, this wine goes well with seafood and a variety of fresh, modern cuisine.
Colour

Crystal clear with a dash of lime green.

Tasting Notes

Ultra-light, celadon green colour with almost mineral spring facial stripes. Well balanced with a bit of natural residual sugar to round up an innate zesty acidity, typical of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc.
This Sauvignon Blanc releases tropical aromas such as lychee, passionfruit, feijoa and limes, all of them accompanied with whiffs of fresh herbs.

Food Matching

Best served with Tasmanian salmon, Cantonese dishes, and Thai curries.

Cellaring

 

Winemaking
Sourced from 32 years old vines planted on rocky loam soils, located on the Central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The grapes were machine harvested in late February, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into stainless tanks, with a small fraction of the fruit transferred into French barrels (five years old). Fermentation took place over 15 days (in stainless) with selected yeast and four weeks in barrels (wild yeast). Both fractions were kept on lees contact for a further month. Finally after five months the wine was racked and stabilised (protein and tartrate) and prepared for bottling.
