The Broken Fishplate Sauvignon Blanc
Despite being a good match for fish, the name has nothing to do with them! A fishplate is a term for the metal plates that collect grape bunches on a harvester, and often break when navigating around the steep, windy vineyards.
Extremely vibrant and limpid colour shows a great level of finesse and freshness. On the nose, exuberant aromas of passion fruit, zesty lime, pineapple, wet slate and herbal notes. On the palate is where everything sets it apart. Tropical fruit flavours like passion fruit, pineapple and lychee are intertwined with a crisp and fresh minerality. The acidity is well balanced bringing the right amount of freshness without making the wine astringent. The finish is long and savoury adding subtle notes of asparagus and cut grass.
