Winemaking:
The estate grown fruit was harvested at optimal ripeness in the early hours of the morning and pressed to tank. The juice from several blocks were fermented separately in tank and kept on lees post fermentation to improve mouthfeel. The Semillon (68%) and Sauvignon Blanc (32%) components were blended prior to bottling to create harmony between the two varieties in the final wine.
Vintage:
A classic cool climate growing season with ample rainfall and cold temperatures was followed by a dry and sunny autumn. The result being a slow, even ripening with tremendous flavour development at low sugar levels.
Colour:
Bright pale straw with green specks.
Nose:
Lifted aromas of citrus flowers, cut grass and tropical fruits.
Palate:
Bright flavours of lemon zest and passionfruit on the palate. Vibrant and sherbety acidity results in a refreshing length to the flavour profile.
Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now.
Alcohol:

12.5%
