Estate 2021 Sauvignon Blanc

COLOUR

Clear, bright, pale gold with a subtle shimmer.

NOSE

Clean, primary aromas of lemon zest, feshly cut grass and green apple.

PALATE

Just picked tropical fruit with hints of lime and lemongrass lead to a citrus and passionfruit laden palate with a delightfully crisp lingering finish.

WINEMAKING

The wine is an assembly of free run juice harvest of several Loire Valley clones. Fermentation is long and cool being generally three weeks between 10 - 12 degrees to retain sincere aromatic and flavour expression. Typical Pyrenees Sauvignon character exhibited with its long lingering flavour length affording it to be paired with more robust food faire than is the norm for this wine variety. 

FOOD PAIRING

Pan fried scallops, tempura, oysters au naturel, lemon chicken with a rocket, nasturtium flower & sorrel salad.

VINTAGE NOTES
Consistent winter rains and a mild spring created a perfect growing season and optimal vine health, progressing to a cooler than normal growing season with well placed summer rains.
