Refined winemaking techniques have better developed the exciting complexities built into the powerful, aromatic and structured fruit of Sauvignon Blanc, which is complimented by the tempering delicacy of our best parcels of Semillon. The small portion of Sauvignon Blanc fermented entirely on skins has helped to broaden and bring structure to the palate, while the use of new French Oak has added spice to the aroma and additional tannin texture to the palate. The use of wild fermentation results in better expression of our true vineyard character, giving the wine a more savoury and solid core. The wine is aged in oak and tank for 6 months before blending.
Color: Pale straw.
Nose: A perfume that takes you to the tropics, with traces of star fruit, pineapple, mango, durian fruit and lemongrass. A hint of custard tart and kaffir lime give way to more earthy notes, reminiscent of a woody forest walk in summer with some coastal sea spray blowing through.
Amazing density for such a fresh wine. Fleshy fruit on the palate follows the tropical theme with guava-like characters, while a wonderful texture of savoury tannin dryness completes the finish, leaving the palate dry but full of fruit and forest perfumes.
