A cool wet summer originally gave us some concerns about the vintage but patience was rewarded with a hot dry harvest season that allowed grapes to ripen fully. The fruit was harvested from our oldest Sauvignon Blanc vineyard block planted in 1993. The vines were thinned down to 2.5 tonnes per acre on this half acre block to ensure high quality premium ripe fruit.
After harvesting, only the ‘free run’ juice was used to produce this wine. After fermentation the wine was aged in French and Hungarian oak barrels for eight months resulting in a ‘fume blanc’ style wine.
Fermented and aged in oak to give it a subtle but remarkable depth of flavour. Floral notes initially dominate followed by ripe peach, citrus, and tropical aromas. The palate is balanced with the well-integrated oak giving only the faintest impression of sweet cedar and spice. Try with pesto baked chicken, alfredo pastas, or grilled vegetables.
Brix At Harvest:19.7
Aging In Oak:8 months
Release Date:May 31, 2019
