Overview

A very lively wine with passion fruit and guava on the nose, followed by a citrus burst on the palate and intense concentration. Our Sauvignon Blanc is fantastic on its own as well as being the perfect accompaniment to fresh, light, summer dishes.

Winemaker: Craig McNaught

Description

The grapes for the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc came from Elgin, giving the wine lovely minerality with ripe tropical fruit on the nose. A very cold-tolerant yeast strain was used to ferment the juice to dryness at a constant 14 degrees Celcius, giving the wine complexity and elegance. Batonage was performed on the wine every two weeks after fermentation to give a creamy texture to the palate, offsetting the natural acidity. The wine was matured on its lees for ten months before fining and bottling.
