Bright pale straw with a shimmer of gold.NOSE
Lifted aromas of poached pear, nutmeg and soft toasty oak.PALATE
Medium bodied textural flavours of lemon rind and kumquats, weaving into lingering and lifted notes of toasty oak and soft citrus.WINEMAKING
The wine is made from our original Bordeaux clone of Sauvignon Blanc. Fermentation is practiced with a higher juice sediment to enhance its textural properties alongside subsequent extended maturation on its yeast lees. Typical Fume character exhibited with clean textural fruit infused in a balanced oak impression across the palate affording it to be paired with more robust food faire than is the norm for this wine variety.FOOD PAIRING
Goats cheese, pumpkin and rocket salad.
A relatively cool summer made for one of the best vintages for many years with harvest taking place weeks later than usual and the slower ripening providing more time for flavour development and more intensely flavoured grapes.
