"Fresh and brightly expressed, the wine shows green apple, lemon zest and jasmine characters, leading to a flavoursome palate displaying punchy fruit intensity with fine texture and vibrant acidity, finishing long and tasty. At its best: now to 2026."

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.
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.
